Will The Saskatchewan Party Implement 'Health Premiums' To Fund Health Care?

Yesterday, the Saskatchewan Party asked a valid question of the New Democrats - will they increase taxes if they are re-elected? That is a fair question, and Premier Calvert said, 'NO'!

So it is only fair to pose a question to the Saskatchewan Party. Since their platform is promising massive spending in Health Care, it is worth asking where all of the new money is going to come from. Brad Wall is going to great length to assure us that he is going to 'fix' health care by putting a LOT of money into new nurses, large increases in nurses salaries and a number of other initiatives.

Considering that Conservative Alberta and Liberal B.C. both have health premiums for their citizens, I think it is a fair question to ask Brad Wall if he will implement the same in Saskatchewan.

So here is my question ... let's see if we get an answer before November 7th:

'Would a Saskatchewan Party government implement Health Premiums or user fees on residents of this province?'

So, Lorne says he wont increase taxes, why would you believe him? he lied back in 2003 so why wouldn't he lie now......remember the PST being increased right after the 2003 election....

User fees on items covered under the Canada Health Act are illegal so it would have to be premiums. I am surprised that any provinces still use premiums rather than tax revenues.
It is a good question though. Ask Calvert if he is going raise oil and gas royalties.
