REALITY CHECK: Scott Moe’s COVID-19 Fiction

Yesterday, Scott Moe made three assertions that have absolutely no basis in reality.

Moe:

“We have committed vast amount of resources to ensure long-term care is as safe as it could possibly be."

 

Fact:

They haven't. Scott Moe has left more than $30 million federal funding on the table, and he's sitting on $260 million from the budget that should be used to save lives.

Moe:

“The measures that we have in place have in a large part kept Saskatchewan residents safe.”

 

Fact:

They haven’t. Deaths have tripled since this public health order was introduced on December 17.

Moe:

“The measures that we do have in place, are working, they continue to work.”

 

Fact:

They aren’t. Presently, Saskatchewan has both the worst COVID-19 death rate and case rate in Canada.
