Sask. Party MLAs believe they are above the law; 2nd Sask. Party MLA Criminally Charged

Beck: Scott Moe’s government is starting to look like the Devine Conservatives

REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck called into question Premier Scott Moe’s leadership and values after another Sask. Party MLA was hit with major criminal charges. 

“Saskatchewan people rightly hold their leaders to a higher standard,” said Beck. “Scott Moe and the Sask. Party are supposed to be fighting crime, not committing them. One is a bad apple. Two is a pattern.” 

The Moose Jaw Police Service today announced that Greg Lawrence has been charged with assault by choking. 

The Police Service also revealed that Lawrence had been under investigation since June 27. Lawrence only left the Sask. Party Caucus late yesterday, hours before news of his criminal charges broke.

Two months ago, Sask. Party MLA Ryan Domotor was picked up in a human trafficking sting. His arrest came mere moments after he was seen sitting on the floor of the Legislative Chamber. Domotor will appear in court tomorrow.

“The Sask. Party has been in power for 16 years. The old boys club in the Legislature clearly thinks that the laws and rules don’t apply to them. Frankly, I think they’re in it for themselves and just not living up to the values we’re so proud of as Saskatchewan people,” said Beck. 

“With the Sunrise Scandal and now this, this government is sure starting to look like the Devine Conservatives.”

Beck called on Premier Moe to face reporters and clarify when his staff first became aware of the investigation.
