The statement reads as follows:
"Last month, avoiding accountability, the Sask. Party government announced that they would be delaying the start of session and the introduction of their budget to April 6th. This April 6th will mark the three-year anniversary of the devastating Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy.
Having heard from the family of one of the victims, expressing outrage that this government has now chosen to introduce the budget on the anniversary of this tragic accident, I agree wholeheartedly that this is a highly insensitive and inappropriate move by the current government.
The Official Opposition is calling on Premier Scott Moe and his government to move the start of the legislative session and budget to an earlier date out of respect for the families and those affected by this tragedy."
