The Saskatchewan election campaign moves to the annual convention of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities today.
Both Saskatchewan Party Leader Brad Wall and NDP Leader Cam Broten are scheduled to deliver speeches to the gathering in Regina as they vie for votes on April 4.
The 27-day campaign kicked off Tuesday with Wall telling supporters the economy will be the No. 1 issue.
He said the question will be which party has the proven record on that front, then attacked the NDP for its performance during its years in power between 1991 and 2007.
Broten brushed aside Wall’s criticism and noted the Saskatchewan Party has been running a half-a-billion-dollar deficit.
He also suggested Wall has not been honest with voters about what his plans are for cuts and increased privatization.
