REGINA - Today, the Sask. Party government delivered a Throne Speech that largely ignored the devastating damage caused by Premier Scott Moe’s refusal to listen to the recommendations of this government’s Chief Medical Health Officer, the Saskatchewan Health Authority and every single public health officer in the province.
“What we need from this government is an immediate plan of action to address the crisis Scott Moe created. Anything less is a choice to put politics ahead of the health and safety of the people of Saskatchewan,” said Ryan Meili, Leader of the Official Opposition. “This is a government living with their heads in the sand. The speech references investments in health care without acknowledging no one can currently access the treatments mentioned. Thousands of surgeries, treatments, transplants and therapies have been cancelled and Scott Moe still refuses to accept responsibility for his role in causing it.”
