Crown corporations and autism are getting some attention during the campaign for the April 4 Saskatchewan election.
NDP Leader Cam Broten suggested Monday the Saskatchewan Party has a hidden agenda to sell off Crown corporations.
He said nobody mentioned selling off previously protected wildlife habitat or government liquor stores in the 2011 election, but that’s what happened after the Saskatchewan party won the vote.
The NDP leader argues that Crown corporations are an important part of affordability for families and they shouldn’t be for sale.
Meanwhile, Saskatchewan Party Leader Brad Wall promised to introduce funding for autism spectrum disorder if his party is re-elected.
He said parents would be allowed to decide how best to use the financial support, which would start at $4,000 annually with a goal of increasing to $18,000 annually.
