Thanks for stopping in at my website! The fall session in the Saskatchewan Legislature has now resumed. The Speech from the Throne was filled with “old news and old noise” instead of concrete plans to create jobs, restore funding to schools, or work towards better health outcomes for Saskatchewan people.
Our leader Ryan Meili was looking for some admission of the damage done by recent government choices, whether it’s the PST hikes or the ongoing mishandling of the GTH but saw none.
“We were disappointed that we didn’t see any commitment to addressing the underfunding of education, a focus on addressing the province’s worst-in-the-nation health outcomes, or the reversal of the harmful expansion of the PST to construction and restaurant meals,” Meili said. “This was the Premier’s chance to make his mark on the province by addressing the real issues that people are struggling with, but he chose not to.”
We are happy to see some focus on income assistance and mental health, but we will be holding the government to account to ensure they deliver on their promises, as all too often the Sask. Party talks about taking action but fails to deliver.
We still are calling for fair minimum wage, investment in education and advocacy on national pharmacare.
I am honoured to be newly appointed as critic for Parks, Culture & Sport; Tourism Saskatchewan as well as having the Ethics & Democracy portfolio and Human Rights, Equality and Diversity portfolio.
