According to a recent University of Regina study, Saskatchewan’s child poverty rates continue to be the worst in the country and the Sask. Party’s callous cuts and unfair tax hikes are not helping to make anything better for these children in need.
The Sask. Party has once again been called out for not following the rules and refusing to come clean. This time, it was the Privacy Commissioner who criticized them for not doing the required work to release emails related to the Sask. Party’s GTH scandal as requested through freedom of information.
After blatantly misrepresenting a specific homework assignment on Treaty education and calling the entire curriculum into question, this week, Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre has taken several opportunities to say she was apologizing but, there still seems to be something not quite right about what she says is her apology.
In the last week alone, she has released a written statement, spoken to the Saskatchewan School Boards Association, addressed questions raised by the NDP in the Legislature (she didn’t really answer but she did stand up and speak), and she spoke to the media two separate times.
Following the Minister of Education’s reckless and misleading comments about treaty education, the Saskatchewan NDP is calling on the minister to immediately resign from her position in cabinet.
Saskatchewan NDP Leader Nicole Sarauer made the following statement on the passing of MLA Kevin Phillips:
“Today, New Democrats across the province join with all Canadians in honouring the women and men who have selflessly sacrificed and served our country. Though we should strive to pay tribute to their sacrifice all year long, it is on this day that we collectively take time to show that we shall never forget.
