Today’s official announcement that the 2020 Saskatchewan election has begun means the floodgates are open to the fearmongering and half-truths that have become the cornerstone of Sask. Party electioneering.
Leader of the Saskatchewan New Democrats Ryan Meili launched the provincial election campaign today with a promise to invest in people and stand against Sask. Party cuts to health care and education.
In a tell-all interview in the Regina Leader-Post, Sask.Party leader Scott Moe revealed his playbook to capture the hearts and minds of Saskatchewan voters:
“Boring might be just not too bad” – Scott Moe, Sept 28, 2020

When Scott Moe decided to close 12 rural hospital emergency rooms in the middle of a pandemic this year, his decision came without consultation, consideration or warning. We know this because of what his own neglected rural backbenchers said.
Today NDP Leader Ryan Meili, joined by NDP Health Critic, Vicki Mowat, and rural health care advocate and Saskatchewan NDP candidate for Canora-Pelly, Stacey Strykowski, committed to repairing years of Sask. Party underfunding of rural healthcare, which has led to service disruptions, closed Emergency Rooms, and greater stress for rural families and seniors.
Following Ryan Meili’s promise to shut down corporate and union political donations, Scott Moe defended his friends and insiders yesterday, and renewed his commitment to keeping his Saskatchewan Party stuck in the past.
NDP Leader Ryan Meili is committing to slam the door shut on corporate political donations. Since 2007, the Saskatchewan Party has taken in over $19 million in corporate donations, many from companies outside of Saskatchewan.
