Moe’s first budget continues failed policies

April 10, 2018

REGINA—Unifor says Saskatchewan families are getting more of the same from rookie premier Scott Moe: public service cuts and reckless disregard for the province’s most vulnerable residents.

“Scott Moe’s imagination doesn’t go beyond cutting services and experimenting with privatization,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “It’s simply more of the same and more suffering ahead for Saskatchewan families trying to make ends meet.”

Tabled by Finance Minister Donna Harpauer today, the budget doesn’t fully restore previous cuts to education, slashes student aid, cuts funding for cities, and contains no investments in Saskatchewan’s prized Crown corporations.

“The Sask. Party is out of ideas,” said Joie Warnock, Unifor Western Regional Director. “Saskatchewan has unique challenges and Scott Moe is not up to the job.”
