Thanks for stopping in at my website! The Spring 2017 Session has now started and the new budget will be released on March 22.
We were delighted about our win in the Saskatoon Meewasin by-election and the addition of Ryan Meili to our caucus.
Our team will continue to stand up against the Sask. Party’s attacks on the province’s families and most vulnerable as well as their attempts to force all Saskatchewan people to pay for Sask. Party mismanagement, scandal and waste with their callous cuts and desperate sell-offs.
The Sask. Party simply hasn’t been straight with the people of Saskatchewan when it comes to the state of the finances. We have got a ballooning deficit that the Sask. Party refuses to be honest about. Instead, they continue to threaten Saskatchewan people with more cuts and Crown sell-offs. Saskatchewan people are relying on us to hold this government to account for their lies, deceit, and dirty attacks. It is a responsibility that we take very seriously and we will fight for every day.
NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon tabled a Private Members Bill that will get big money out of Saskatchewan politics by updating Saskatchewan’s outdated and broken campaign finance laws. We believe that Saskatchewan’s democracy should be for Saskatchewan people, free from questions of influence from corporate or union donors, and not for out-of-province companies looking to pay-to-play.
The bill bans corporate and union donations and restricts personal contributions so that only individuals who are residents of Saskatchewan can make donate and those donations are capped so they cannot exceed $1275.
I am delighted to be the labour critic as well as being newly appointed to the Ethics & Democracy portfolio and Human Rights, Equality and Diversity! Again, it is my pleasure to serve as the caucus chair.
Keep in touch!
