With the excitement of Wednesday’s throne speech, the leader of the opposition was quick to say that he believes it’ll be the same-old Sask party government going forward.
Ryan Meili said 12 of the 18 outlined plans the provincial government has are recycled ideas from months, even years, ago.
“This is a throne speech that was Scott Moe’s big opportunity to show that he had his own vision, his own set of ideas,” Meili said. “Fact of the matter is it’s extremely thin on vision, there’s little there to see what is his plan, what is his idea for where Saskatchewan is going.”
However, with the promise to improve commercial driver training and make the province’s roads and interchanges safer, Meili said there’s more to be done.
“It is worth noting that there were a number of recommendations to this government, reports on how to improve safety at intersections by using roundabouts, and they chose not to follow those recommendations,” Meili said. “They also made cuts in the past to training for those drivers.”
Meili also said the omission of any details on education and crystal meth enforcement in the province goes to show the Sask Party government don’t understand the real challenges people face in the province.
