NDP to focus on healthcare, education and Sask. Party failures on the economy in spring session

With economic warning signs flashing as the spring session gets underway, the Saskatchewan NDP Caucus will continue to focus on healthcare and education, and on getting the economy going by hiring local workers and raising the minimum wage.

“Saskatchewan is a great place to live, but people are feeling stretched,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “Costs are rising faster than wages, services like healthcare and education keep getting cut, and Scott Moe and the Sask. Party just point fingers instead of getting things done.”

Meili said the NDP will be pushing for accountability for the Sask. Party’s choices that only benefited the well-connected, like the Brandt commercial office building in Wascana Park, costly projects built by out-of-province companies and for smart investments in healthcare and education.

“With continued rumours of a spring election, I’ll let the Premier focus on playing politics,” said Meili. “The Saskatchewan NDP will focus on putting people first.”

Meili and the NDP caucus will focus on the Sask. Party’s record of spending on pet projects that benefit their friends and donors at the expense of key investments in health care and education services Saskatchewan people depend on when things get tough.
