REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Health Critic Vicki Mowat and Rural and Remote Health Critic Matt Love launched the Healthcare Solutions Tour from the Saskatchewan Legislature.
“Saskatchewan’s health system is in a short-staffing crisis and Moe’s Health Minister is missing in action,” said Mowat. “That’s why we’re speaking to the people on the front line who know firsthand what’s wrong in our health system and how best to fix it.”
The Healthcare Solutions Tour will take the Official Opposition Health Critics across Saskatchewan to consult with municipal leaders, first responders, doctors, nurses, lab technicians and other healthcare professionals over the next few months. Mowat and Love's first stops today will be in Cupar and Southey.
“The provincial coffers are full of windfall revenues, yet somehow he still hasn’t used those resources to fix our crumbling health system,” said Love. “We know Premier Moe’s health plan still leaves Saskatchewan over 1,000 health workers short. People want solutions, not slogans, from their government.”
“It was the Saskatchewan NDP that pioneered Canadian healthcare, and after 15 years of Sask. Party incompetence, we're ready to work with Saskatchewan people to reinvent it again.”
