The fall-out from last week’s budget continues to dominate debate in the Saskatchewan legislature.
Opposition leader Trent Wotherspoon says the removal of municipal grants in lieu of taxes is ripping millions of dollars from cities and towns.
Premier Brad Wall says some tough decisions had to be made because of the 1.2 billion dollar deficit.
He says municipal revenue sharing has doubled since the SaskParty came to power.
He says communities will still have far more support than when the NDP were in office.
The NDP is also is calling on the government to cancel the six percent PST on children’s clothes, shoes and diapers.
Finance minister Kevin Doherty says NDP math is wrong because they want to keep spending when income falls from lower resource revenue.
Doherty also pointed out that diapers are exempt from the PST.
