Scott Moe and the Sask. Party are letting seniors down. In 2016, without warning or care, they began clawing back the Seniors’ Income Plan from low-income seniors and seniors living with a disability, taking support away from seniors who needed it the most.
These cuts were made after the last election in the name of budget austerity – the exact same theme Scott Moe and the Sask. Party are running on this campaign, which is downright dangerous during a pandemic.
How else has Scott Moe made life harder for seniors?
- He jacked up the costs of prescriptions for seniors in every corner of the province.
- He cut programs that helped low-income seniors afford things like hearing aids.
- He hiked fees for long term care – making seniors pay more out of pocket to keep a roof.
Scott Moe’s Sask. Party is running on a promise of more cuts that are downright dangerous – and Saskatchewan seniors, and their families, are going to pay the price.
Saskatchewan can do better.
