REGINA - NDP Leader Ryan Meili and Agriculture Critic Trent Wotherspoon joined producers on a family farm outside of Regina n to call on the Sask. Party government to stop stalling and sign on to the full AgriStability fix proposed by the federal government before the June 30 deadline for farmers and producers to enroll for the program.
“The federal government’s proposal has been on the table for months, but so far the Sask. Party government has been asleep at the wheel,” said Meili. “I was proud to stand with Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley and Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew to make a joint call on the prairie conservative governments to back this much-needed fix in April. It’s shameful that this government has refused to lead on behalf of our farmers and producers.”
