Unions fight back on budget cuts and threat of privatizing Crowns

Fri, 2017-04-28 18:11
Neil Colmin, Vice President SEIU West in Moose Jaw, noted that the SaskParty began talking about transformational change one year ago, but after not mentioning it during the last election campaign, they then put everything on the table and made significant cuts. “In last month’s budget, we saw deep cuts. Mean, spirited cuts, targeted at services and programs that people rely upon daily.”

Letter to the Editor: Struggling with the lack of empathy

Wed, 2017-04-12 17:18
Anyone else lost all confidence in our provincial government? Families and workers are getting hit from all sides due to the recent overwhelming provincial budget cuts to service and tax hikes. We are losing good jobs in many communities at the hand of our government. One MLA was quoted as saying ‘we have too many libraries.’ Government’s disrespect for higher learning is further demonstrated by cuts to funding in both K-12 education and our universities. Families who have children with special needs are losing much-needed resources (that we previously thought were scarce) and seniors have been hit hard with a loss of services like the STC and a huge increase in costs for long term care.
