Finance Minister Kevin Doherty unveiled the ‘tight’ shoes he will be wearing when he tables the provincial budget on Wednesday.
Doherty says there is significance to why the shoes are brown in colour. “So I guess I’m a traditionalist when it comes to my suits and my shoes. I typically wear dark suits or black suits and wear black shoes. My partner Nancy said if you are talking about all this transformational change it’s time for you to transform yourself a bit.”
The shoes were purchased from Venice Tailors in Regina and Doherty says it is important to him to support local businesses and that could be a sign of whats to come on Wednesday as well.
The provincial NDP have presented the Minister with a shoe repair kit to signify the work needed to be done to fix the holes and slashes in the budget due to a decline in resource revenues.
