Time to Fix Equalization
Each year, Saskatchewan taxpayers contribute $580 million to the federal equalization program, and for the past 11 years we have received $0 in return. Meanwhile, provinces like Quebec receive over $11 billion annually.
Equalization, fully controlled by the federal government, has not had any consideration for the current challenging resource prices we have been facing for the last four years.
It’s time to change this flawed program and stand up for Saskatchewan people and our economy.
