New Democratic Party Leader Ryan Meili stood with Noor Burki, New Democrat candidate in Regina Coronation Park, to highlight the risk of Scott Moe’s plans for dangerous cuts during a pandemic.
“Noor Burki is the kind of change that the people of Regina Coronation Park are looking for,” said Meili. “He’s hearing what so many of our candidates and volunteers are hearing on the doorstep: this time, people just can’t trust Scott Moe to make the investments we need to fight Covid-19 and strengthen our communities.”
Meili noted that after the last election, the Sask. Party laid off health care workers, cut $54 million from classrooms and $25 million from universities, and sold off STC.
“Cuts to health care and education are a bad idea anytime. During a pandemic, they’re downright dangerous,” said Burki. “My neighbours in Coronation Park are telling me it’s time for a change. They feel let down by Scott Moe and the Sask. Party – and they see the positive vision being put forth by Ryan Meili. This time, they’re voting NDP.”
Saskatchewan New Democrats are offering voters in Saskatchewan and Regina Coronation Park a clear choice for the investments we need now, and against the cuts Scot Moe has promised for the next four years.
An NDP government will:
- Stop Scott Moe’s plan for austerity and cuts
- Fix the understaffing crisis in healthcare to fight Covid-19
- Quit sending our kids to overcrowded classrooms by investing in real solutions to lower class sizes
- Call a public inquiry into the GTH scandal
- End the Sask. Party’s practice of sending jobs out of Saskatchewan by moving to a Sask. First model to build our schools, our hospital and our roads with our companies and our workers.
