Thanks for stopping in at my website! The fall session of the Saskatchewan Legislature is now over – the Sask Party government’s Throne Speech showed that Scott Moe is again letting people down. Throughout the Fall Legislative Session, our leader, Ryan Meili and the NDP stayed focused on the issues that matter to Saskatchewan people, particularly growing public frustration with the state of Saskatchewan classrooms and emergency rooms.
Over the past weeks the NDP raised concerns around long wait times in emergency rooms, the prevalence of hallway medicine, and the brand-new Saskatchewan Hospital that already needs its roof replaced and where patients and staff still can’t drink the water. The NDP also shone a light on the culture of fear that has prevailed under the Sask. Party, revealing a hush memo that warned Saskatchewan healthcare workers not to speak out or keep detailed minutes.
NDP MLAs put forward a number of ideas to better the future of the province, including pressing the federal government to rebate the cost of grain drying for farmers and restoring the AgriStability program to where it was before Harper’s cuts. The NDP also committed to ensuring that with an NDP government, no K-3 classroom would have more than 24 students. Critic for Northern Affairs Doyle Vermette introduced Bill No. 618 — The Saskatchewan Strategy for Suicide Prevention Act — to help prevent further tragedies that many communities are facing.
I am honoured to serve as the critic for Labour; Workers’ Compensation Board; the portfolio of Ethics & Democracy and Diversity, Equality & Human Rights. As well as serving as deputy chair of the NDP caucus.
