Meili: Saskatchewan New Democrats to put people first in Prince Albert

Saskatchewan NDP Leader Ryan Meili visited Prince Albert today - the day after the Saskatchewan election was launched - with a promise to invest in the people of Prince Albert and area, and stand against the Sask. Party’s agenda of austerity and cuts.

“In the last six months, Saskatchewan families have been through a lot. We’re fighting the COVID crisis together,” said Meili. “But even before the pandemic hit, life here was getting harder. People are stretched and stressed and finding it more difficult to make ends meet. Scott Moe and the Sask. Party are satisfied with the way things are – and are taking Prince Albert for granted. That’s not right. It’s time to put people first – starting right here in P.A.”

Meili pledged that a Saskatchewan New Democratic Party government would act immediately to stop the Sask Party’s cuts and invest in the things that matter to families in Prince Albert, including:

  • Building a new bridge for Prince Albert
  • Building a complete new hospital

 “When we build these projects, we will do so under a Sask First model – meaning Saskatchewan companies and Saskatchewan workers will be on the job site,” said Meili. “We’re standing up to the Sask. Party’s old boys’ club of corporate donors. We won’t send those jobs out of the province like the Sask. Party has done with so many projects.”
