New ad says patients should be the priority – not consultants

A new commercial from the New Democrats takes aim at the Sask. Party's choice to spend big on consultants and top-heavy management in health care instead of making patients the priority. 

The commercial was released Wednesday on television and online.

“This ad cuts right to a reality that everyday Saskatchewan families are coping with,” said New Democrat campaign manager Frank Quennell. “The hours a parent waits in an ER with their little one, or the months we wait for a specialist appointment – those waits are painful and full of anxiety. That reality is especially frustrating because after a decade of resource wealth, it definitely doesn’t have to be this way.

New ad highlights billions going to foreign corporations

New Democrats want to invest in Saskatchewan instead

In a new commercial, Saskatchewan's New Democrats are shining a light on the Sask. Party's practice of sending contracts, jobs and billions of dollars out of the province.

The ad, which launched on television and online Monday, argues that we should be investing in Saskatchewan people, local businesses and communities instead.

“We know Saskatchewan people and businesses can offer incredible value,” said the New Democrat's campaign manager Frank Quennell. “Our companies, province and people are renowned for high-quality work and a work ethic that's second to none, along with compassion and skill. Yet the Sask. Party record shows an astounding preference for sending contracts and jobs to other countries. That's reckless and undermines Saskatchewan's future.”
