Statement by Official Opposition Health Critic Vicki Mowat March 30, 2021

In response to the lack of concrete action in Moose Jaw and area despite concerns over rising COVID-19 variants in the community, NDP Health Critic Vicki Mowat released the following statement.

Once again we are seeing Scott Moe and this Sask. Party government ignore the warning signs for a community in our province.

You only need to look down the road to Regina to see the cost of inaction. Regina hospital admissions and ICU beds are overwhelmed. This is the direct result of Scott Moe’s failure to take responsibility. Schools in Moose Jaw have moved to remote learning, but the government is keeping bars and restaurants open. It doesn’t make any more sense in Moose Jaw than it did in Regina.

Hopefully the government will come to its senses and introduce similar restrictions in Moose Jaw as it has in Regina. If it does so, it shouldn't have to wait for a Tuesday at 3:00pm. The virus moves at its own speed and we need to move faster to keep people safe.”
