“I am committed to ensuring that all Saskatchewan families are able to benefit from Saskatchewan’s wealth. The cost of living is out of control. Emergency room wait times are long and hallway medicine is becoming more common in crowded hospitals. Seniors care is in crisis. Schools have large and growing class sizes that can’t give kids the one-on-one attention they need. It doesn’t have to be this way. I believe in Cam Broten’s vision and commitment to make a difference where it really matters to people, and I want to be a part of that change for Saskatchewan families and for Saskatchewan’s future.”
