New Democrats Challenge Premier Wall To PROVE That Cozy Relationship With Harper Financially Benefits The Province

The Federal Conservatives' broken campaign promise to pull non-renewable resource revenues out of the province's transfer formula, would have meant an estimated additional $800-million annually in federal funding for the province of Saskatchewan.

All that Saskatchewan has to show for this broken promise is a bridge funded by the Feds to the tune of $86 Million. Basic math proves that $86 Million does not add up to $800 Million!

Yet to hear right wing Premier Brad Wall tell it, Saskatchewan is benefiting financially from his cozy 'lap dog' relationship with the Harper Conservatives.

So ... the time has come for Wall's Sask Party to demonstrate on paper, how Harper's broken promise on natural resources has benefited the province. The NDP Opposition has asked Wall to prove his ongoing claims that Saskatchewan is receiving "as much or better" from the Feds.
