“The Sask Party Government has mismanaged a boom, and now Saskatchewan taxpayers are left on the hook to pay for their mistakes.” That is the opinion of PC Party Leader Rick Swenson. “Their lack of vision when the money was rolling in is now evident as shown in the mid-year financial update.”

“The government claims they have been able to reduce the deficit by $30 million dollars from earlier projections.” added Swenson. “Meanwhile, they borrowed $700 million to balance the budget; they allowed the South Regina Bypass to balloon by another $680 million in 5 months; they are cutting front line health care workers, while allowing upper management to pull in large salary increases.”

Swenson continued “If they had vision, they would see that by moving the bypass to a northern route they would save $1 billion dollars, which by itself would solve this current deficit issue. Instead, they choose to blame all their problems on the lower resource prices instead of planning for something they knew would eventually happen.”

“Our province cannot simply sit by and let this lack of vision ruin us. We need to send this government a message in April.”
