Leader of the Official Opposition Nicole Sarauer released the following statement about the resignation of Brad Wall as Premier of Saskatchewan and Member of the Legislative Assembly for Swift Current.
“Mr. Wall has served the people of Swift Current and the province of Saskatchewan for five terms and anyone who dedicates decades of their life to public service deserves recognition for that work. Even though we come from different political parties, have very different perspectives and disagree on many things, I appreciate the commitment that Mr. Wall has shown and the sacrifices he has made while serving our province.
“I wish Mr. Wall and his family well as he moves on to the next chapter of his life.
“While Mr. Wall is stepping away, our work as the Official Opposition continues. This is still the same Sask. Party who is punishing Saskatchewan people for Sask. Party mismanagement, scandal and waste with heartless cuts, unfair tax hikes, and desperate sell-offs. The Sask. Party has doubled the number of Saskatchewan people looking for work and, in just five years, they are doubling the province’s debt.
“Even with a new leader, this is still the same Sask. Party that is hurting our kids and loved ones with cuts to our schools and hospitals, making it harder for Saskatchewan families to make ends meet, and putting our Crowns and seniors' homes on the chopping block.
“New Democrats will continue fighting for and alongside the people of Saskatchewan and we remain committed to building this great province together.”
