REGINA, SK – Saskatchewan Liberal leader Jeff Walters is calling the provincial budget released today disappointing and insufficient.
“Premier Moe had an opportunity to show vision,” states Walters. “Instead, it is more of the same. In a time that needs him to hit a home run, he continues to play small ball.”
The Saskatchewan government is projecting a deficit and increased fees on select businesses and sectors of the economy. There is also no plan for any bold new initiatives. This means that it is neither fiscally responsible nor far reaching in scope.
“Attempting to minimize the deficit on the backs of small businesses and the people is just the wrong way to go. They have no real plan at this point. We, as a province, can do better. Our families deserve better.”
