Sask. Union of Nurses President Condemns Saskatchewan Party For Misrepresenting Her Comments!

The following article appears in the October 20, 2007 edition of the Regina Leader Post:

"Rosalee Longmoore stands by her words, but she objects to her name and that of the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses being used for political gain.

The SUN president is upset that Saskatchewan Party candidate Bill Hutchinson recently sent out campaign literature using information that was published on the SUN Web site without attributing a source.

One of the points on the two-sided leaflet reads: "Nearly a decade of inaction by the Saskatchewan government is forcing our health care system into crisis.""We're not disputing that those (words) are part of our document," Longmoore said Friday morning. "What we are concerned about is that when they don't identify the source it looks like we're supporting a particular candidate or party."She's also concerned about another quote in the leaflet that appears to be taken from the SUN's Web site and attributed to SUN but which was actually written for a 1999 Leader-Post column and posted on the SUN Web site.

"This material makes it look like that was said in February 2007," Longmoore said.

Longmoore said neither she nor her union are endorsing any political party or candidate in the provincial election.

"SUN is a very clear non-partisan union," she said.

Even MORE dishonesty and lies by the Saskatchewan Party !!

Leftdog it's fine if she doesn't endorse the Sask Party. But it's also fine that they used a public quote from her - an expert in the health care field.
