While it was never in question as to whether or not he would represent the NDP in the riding of Saskatoon Eastview, leader Cam Broten was officially declared the party’s candidate in the riding on Saturday night.
He said the NDP is focused on three things heading into the election.
“Cutting the Sask. Party’s waste. Putting money in middle-class families’ pockets. And fixing and investing in things we count on – like health care and our kids’ classrooms.”
Broten told the crowd the Saskatchewan Party has let the province down in good times by failing to save money and invest in things that matter; and that the province can’t afford the Saskatchewan Party in tough times, referencing deficit and cuts that have already started, and more on the horizon should they have the chance.
“For me, it’s not just about the province doing well – it’s about people doing well. And that’s where the Sask Party has really lost their way,” he said. “They choose foreign corporations to build our province – not businesses here at home. They spend recklessly on their pet projects – and ignore your priorities. They make consultants rich – and cut your services. They privatize health care and tell you to pay – or wait longer.
Saskatchewan voters will go to the polls in April.
