Today was a big day for private consultants and foreign companies who have gotten used to the Sask. Party’s government trough.
Since 2007, the Sask. Party has allowed the per kilometer cost of highway construction to jump by $200,000. That means - even if fully implemented – today’s announcement would result in only about 100 kilometers of highway.
Given the Sask. Party’s focus on doling out lucrative contracts to private consultants and foreign companies, one has to wonder how much the people of Saskatchewan would benefit anyway.
Why Brad Wall has decided his priority is to spend Saskatchewan highway dollars on foreign corporations, private consultants and insiders we may never know.
What is clear is that we are not his priority anymore.
