REALITY CHECK: Still no sightings of elusive Sask. Party budget

The Sask. Party budget is apparently an endangered species, with no sightings at all a month after it was supposed to be out.

If Brad Wall’s planned budget, which was due in March, was good for families, he’d release it.

The only document fiscal-plan hunters have been able to spot was a small third-quarter update on the last budget, released in February, and it didn’t look healthy.

• A $427 million deficit

• A $51.3 million cut to education

• Debt up to $13.5 billion

Are more cuts and privatization lurking in the woods? As long as the Sask. Party keeps the elusive budget hidden, taxpayers won’t know more until after they vote – but perhaps that’s just how Wall wants it.
