Saskatchewan continues to hold the dubious distinction of the province with the highest rate of domestic violence in Canada. Today, the Saskatchewan NDP tabled a bill that, if passed into law, would provide clear supports to those seeking to escape these abusive relationships.
With the British Columbia Premier Christy Clark committing to the creation of a non-partisan committee to review the province’s campaign finance laws, the Saskatchewan NDP is once again pushing the Sask. Party to get big money out of Saskatchewan politics.
During yesterday’s debate on the GTH Scandal, in a clear demonstration that irony is not dead, Sask. Party back benchers stood up and preformed a baffling eulogy for truth and facts.
The member from Sask. Rivers boldly said, “Truth is dead and facts are now passé, considered so-last-year’s sentiment.”
Now, it’s true that the Sask. Party’ s constant spin, denial, games, and voodoo math have done a number on the facts and the truth but, we’re not ready to let honesty and the truth be killed and buried.
NDP take stand for Saskatchewan workers
This morning, New Democrats stood their ground in defence of Saskatchewan families and workers. NDP Caucus Chair and Ethics and Democracy Critic, along with NDP House Leader Warren McCall, shut down a meeting where the Sask. Party was attempting to pass their latest plan to attack Saskatchewan families and workers with even deeper cuts.
While agreeing to cut their own wages by 3.5 per cent, the NDP MLAs are demanding that, after 10 years in government, the Premier and the Sask. Party cabinet ministers accept responsibility for their string of billion dollar deficits.
Following the win in the Saskatoon Meewasin by-election and the addition of Ryan Meili to the caucus, NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon announced changes to the Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet.
