Reality Check: Scott Moe’s arrogance is failing Saskatchewan
Monday, the Premier insulted anyone in Saskatchewan who critiques his damaging lack of action to get the pandemic under control.
When given the opportunity to apologize for his dangerous and divisive rhetoric yesterday, the Premier chose instead to double down – a slap in the face to doctors, nurses, and front-line health care workers.
Sadly, this is no surprise. The Premier’s recent attitude needs an adjustment:
- Moe ended 2020 by saying there’s nothing he would change in his pandemic response.
- He rejected calls for Joe Hargrave to be removed from cabinet until the very last second.
- He dismissed calls for real action and accountability for the tragedy at Extendicare Parkside.
You might expect some humility from the premier of a province that has led the nation in COVID-19 case rates and death rates for most of 2021.
Instead, Moe’s continued insults and arrogance only divide Saskatchewan people at a time when we need to all pull together.
