Despite the public’s outrage at the slow sell-off of our province’s valuable Crowns, the Sask. Party government is pushing ahead with the sale of two publicly owned gas plants to a private, out-of-province company for $31.3 million.
“Saskatchewan’s publicly owned Crown Corporations were built by Saskatchewan people, for Saskatchewan people. They’re a proud pillar of our economy, delivering vital public services at affordable rates. But the Sask. Party has shown through their actions that we simply can’t trust them with our Crowns,” said NDP SaskEnergy Critic Nicole Rancourt. “Again and again, they’ve failed to be transparent about how they’re managing our Crowns. They sold off STC just a few months after telling voters it was safe. They won’t tell us how much they got for our STC assets, and now they’re selling off SaskEnergy assets.”
