MLAs across Saskatchewan return to the halls of the Legislature Wednesday to start the fall session of the Legislative Assembly, and the NDP’s interim leader says budget changes are still looming on the minds of people across the province.
Nicole Sarauer says they plan on taking issue with the Saskatchewan Party’s changes.
“In particular, we’re hearing a lot of frustration about the PST. The expansion has had quite a negative impact on both business across the province, as well as families,” Sarauer says. “We’re also hearing a lot of concern about the Sask Party’s plan to sell off our crown (corporations). The people of Saskatchewan have been pretty loud and clear that that’s not on for them.”
Sarauer says some of the NDP’s work last session led to success, noting the provincial government used some of their suggestions on supports for victims of domestic violence in their bill, which was passed.
Sarauer was appointed interim leader in the summer, when the previous session at the Legislature had concluded.
