Thanks for stopping in at my website! We are now finished session and in fact, we have finished the four year term so next up is the election of April 2016. I encourage everyone to participate and get out and vote!
We see that Brad Wall has changed, and his decisions on where to spend and where to make painful cuts have gotten very out of line with Saskatchewan families.
The Sask. Party has had a golden opportunity with our resource boom delivering revenues like never before over the last decade. For a time, in the early days of the Wall government, we were actually on pretty similar pages as to what to do with that money. Things like pay down some debt and hire more nurses.
But Mr. Wall has changed and his priorities just don’t match Saskatchewan people’s priorities anymore. Instead of our prosperity being used to make life better for everyone, to improve health care and seniors care and education, we’re seeing more and more bad choices that benefit foreign corporations over Saskatchewan businesses, and make life better for government politicians instead of making life easier for families.
Wall is spending tens of millions of dollars on Lean promoters within health care every year. And senior health executives have had massive raises – averaging as high as 46 per cent in one health region.
I was especially hopeful that we would pass Bill 612 – The Respect for Diversity – Student Bill of Rights Act but the SaskParty didn’t allow this to happen. I introduced this bill in April to give students the right to form a GSA in any publicly funded school in the province. This bill is based on current laws in Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta.

Again, thanks for coming by and please vote on April 4th 2016!
