Saskatchewan's So Called 'Fiscal Conservative' Premier Wall Simply Can't Balance The Province's Budget
"Since the annual budget, released in March, projected only a razor-thin $14.8 million surplus on a summary financial basis, there can be no doubt that Saskatchewan has a deficit and growing debt. [...] The government’s first quarter financial report shows that Saskatchewan people will now be asked to pay more and get less in order to cover the Sask. Party’s mistakes and expensive spin.
The unacceptable Sask. Party report showed their budget projections are already short by $113.2 million only three months into the fiscal year. “The Sask. Party already took a swipe at kindergarten classrooms, cut the film industry and took more from the pockets of seniors. Now they’re vowing to take another $55 million from everyday families to cover their mistakes,” said Trent Wotherspoon, NDP finance critic. “It’s mind-boggling that they won’t even be straight with everyday families about where they are making cuts.”
