REGINA—Saskatchewan New Democrats unanimously approved a solidarity motion with the people of Ukraine, as well as all Saskatchewan people with friends and family in the region at Provincial Council on February 26, 2022.
Scott Moe and the Sask. Party want people to accept that their steady-as-she-goes, status-quo plan is good enough. But the facts are, under the Sask Party:
- There are fewer support people in our classrooms
- There are fewer counsellors and school psychologists
- There are fewer speech language pathologists
- There are fewer occupational therapists
- There aren’t enough EA’s - only 46 out of 400 promised have been delivered by Scott Moe
- There are fewer English-as-an-Additional-Language teachers – while the number of EAL students continues to grow every year
But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s just some of what folks have had to say about Scott Moe’s Education plan:
"We have huge concerns. These cuts are going to drastically affect students." - Patrick Maze, Saskatchewan Teachers Federation, May 13, 2019, CBC
"We are already under-resourced, we are already under-funded. Further cuts are only going to make the situation more severe.” - Jessica Brown, Saskatoon elementary school teacher, May 13, 2019, CBC
"We're at a point now where unless something changes significantly we’re not going to be able to sustain these cuts.” - Ray Morrison, Chair, Saskatoon Public School Board, May 13, 2019, CBC
“We’ve had another year of significant reductions and, despite our best efforts, this will impact students in the classroom.” - Ray Morrison, Chair, Saskatoon Public School Board
REGINA—The Saskatchewan New Democrats set the rules and timing for a leadership contest at Provincial Council on February 26th. The new leader will be elected at a leadership convention in Regina in late June, 2022.
All Saskatchewan New Democratic Party members in good standing will be eligible to vote online or by mail-in ballot.
Standing with New Democratic Party candidate Melissa Patterson in Moose Jaw Wakamow today, NDP Leader Ryan Meili called on voters in his hometown to reject Scott Moe’s plan for dangerous cuts during a pandemic.
