Statement from Official Opposition SLGA Critic Nathaniel Teed on the auctioning-off of profitable SLGA stores

I think a lot of people are asking themselves — “is this what I voted for?” Nobody asked for the Sask. Party to sell off profitable liquor stores that pay for our hospitals and schools or to lay off 400 workers in the middle of an affordability crisis. With this important stream of revenue lost, I fear the Sask. Party government will continue to increase taxes and hike power and energy bills again just to pay for their bad financial decisions.
