Stop the cuts to the STC

We, the undersigned residents of the Province of Saskatchewan, wish to bring to your attention the following:

  • That this Sask. Party budget unilaterally eliminates the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC), an important Crown Corporation that provides a crucial service to people across the province who depend on it for traveling, accessing medical services, and shipping important packages;
  • That the Sask. Party did not inform the Saskatchewan people prior to the 2016 election about their plan to scrap STC;
  • That the closure leaves 224 people out of work and communities across the province isolated from each other;
  • That less than a year ago, the then Minister said STC is a ‘needed service’ and that it was safe from sale;
  • That STC provides a vital service to many seniors, workers, and families throughout the province;
  • That by scrapping STC out of the blue and without asking permission of the owners – the Saskatchewan people –
    the Sask. Party is sending a clear sign about how little they care about protecting our Crowns like SaskTel;
  • That STC helps to drive the economy with its parcel service that serves farms and other businesses;
  • That the Sask. Party is breaking their promise to Saskatchewan people by getting rid of a Crown Corporation;
