Reactions vary for province’s surplus plan

The Saskatchewan Party government’s four point plan for their sudden, resource revenue-driven 1 billion surplus that was announced yesterday is getting a mixed bag of reactions.
It’s getting a thumbs up from the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, but a thumbs down from the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour.
The Chamber said that while they are pleased to see the removal of fitness and gym memberships from the expanded PST coming into place in October, they would like to see the PST exemption moved to other sectors.
Meanwhile the SFL said that the $500 rebates this fall are a short term solution to a long term affordability crisis. They said Many workers have already spent well over $500 due to tax hikes and inflation.
