Meili says new procurement policy is needed in SK

NDP leader Ryan Meili is in Moose Jaw Wednesday but he is not there for the curling.

Meili went to the city to raise concerns about the SaskParty’s flawed procurement process which he says risks leaving Saskatchewan workers out in the cold once again when it comes to large projects like the SaskPower natural gas plant in the city.

Last week, SaskPower said two US-based companies–one based in Kansas City and one based in Omaha, have been selected to compete for the bid.

That has Meili asking questions saying the government seems to favour large out-of-province companies at the expense of Saskatchewan workers.

He says Saskatchewan workers should be building our schools, hospitals, highways and power stations which is why a procurement policy is needed that works for Saskatchewan people and keeps Saskatchewan people working.
