NDP Critic for Diversity Equality and Human Rights David Forbes made the following statement:
Despite the Sask. Party’s clear record of cuts and claw backs in education, today, the Premier took to Twitter acknowledge Teacher Appreciation Week and claim his own appreciation.
In the wake of the recent Superior Court ruling in favour of Sixties Scoop survivors that recognized the Federal government’s failure to provide proper care for children, the Saskatchewan NDP is once again calling on the Sask. Party to finally make good on their promise to apologize for Saskatchewan’s role in the Sixties Scoop.
Saskatchewan continues to lead the provinces with an unacceptable rate of domestic violence, but the Sask. Party is still refusing to take any concrete steps to address the growing problem.
The Sask. Party has already threatened Saskatchewan workers with ripping up contracts, pay cuts, job losses and now, they’re saying they want to cut even deeper.
After again blocking witnesses who know important details about the Sask. Party’s GTH Scandal from testifying at the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, today the Sask. Party shut down the discussion at committee altogether.
