Here in Saskatchewan we believe in looking out for each other. We want to make sure everyone has access to services they need no matter where we live or how much we earn.
And most of all, we all want a better future for our kids and grandkids. That’s why we built our Crown Corporations and our public services.
So why is the Sask Party selling off our public assets to the highest private bidder?
When it comes to our Crowns and privatization, the Sask Party just isn’t listening to us. And if they’re not listening to us, who are they listening to?
Two thirds of us believe privatization will make things less equal in this province.
That’s one big reason we want our government to protect our crown corporations and public services.
But the Sask Party is doing the exact opposite:
They sold off parts of our Crown Corporations, like SaskTel’s internet services and e-mail;
Schools, hospitals and roads are being built under private ownership or control – like the Regina bypass and its $1.9-billion price tag
Hospital laundry and correctional food services are being handed over to private operators who cut corners
Our profitable liquor stores could be soon sold off to private vendors
They’re allowing private MRI clinics, so people can pay extra to jump the queue
Back in 2007, the Sask Party made a promise not to privatize Crowns. But they’ve broken that promise by undermining SaskTel, SaskPower, and privatizing public services. Why should we believe them now?
It’s not enough for the Sask Party to say they’re protecting our Crowns if we’re seeing our Crowns weakened and costs going up.
When is the Sask Party going to listen?
Enough’s enough. We need a government that listens. And a government that works -- for all of us.
