Cabinet Minister Bill Boyd has announced he is stepping down from cabinet before the expected cabinet shuffle later this month. “Before he steps down, Mr. Boyd should provide some answers to the taxpayers of Saskatchewan.” That is the opinion of PC Party Leader, Rick Swenson.
“With all the questionable dealings Mr. Boyd has been involved with, the taxpayers of Saskatchewan deserve some answers. I am sure the taxpayers would like to know who was the special advisor, identified in the Auditor’s Report, who negotiated the Global Transportation Hub deal with the land speculators. The residents of Saskatchewan deserve to know exactly what kind of deal Mr. Boyd negotiated with Yancoal when he travelled to China in 2014.”
“There are many questions that remain unanswered about the Carbon Capture boondoggle and the Smart metre Fiasco. Perhaps now that Minister Boyd is stepping down he would like to answer them.”
“If Mr. Boyd is not willing to step forward and answer to the people of Saskatchewan, then the Premier should be responsible to answer for the mismanaged affairs of his minister.”
“The Sask Party government mismanaged the boom, and is now desperately searching for ways to claw back some of the money they have wasted. The taxpayers deserve to know what happened to the billions of dollars lost under the not-so-watchful eye of Minister Boyd.”
