Saskatchewan Party Holds "BIG HONKIN' RALLY" in SaskatoonOctober 23, 2020
The Saskatchewan Party today held its second car rally, this time in Saskatoon. Premier Scott Moe addressed hundreds of Saskatchewan Party supporters who remained physically distanced in their cars at today’s “Big Honkin’ Rally for a Strong Saskatchewan.”
After being introduced by Saskatoon Meewasin candidate Rylund Hunter, Premier Moe addressed the crowd and outlined the clear differences between the Saskatchewan Party and the NDP.
“Today, there are 170,000 more people living in the province that there were in 2007,” Moe said. “Under the NDP, we lost people, jobs and opportunities to other provinces.
“Today, Saskatchewan has the second-best job creation record in Canada. Under the NDP, Saskatchewan was dead last in job creation.
“Today, we are building new hospitals, schools and highways. The NDP shut them down. The Saskatchewan Party built 57 new schools. The NDP closed 176 schools. The Saskatchewan Party built 15 new seniors care homes. The NDP shut down 1200 long-term care beds for seniors. We are building new hospitals, including the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon. The NDP closed 52 hospitals.
“The Saskatchewan Party has a record of growth. The NDP has a record of decline. That’s why Ryan Meili doesn’t want to talk about the NDP record.”
Premier Moe’s speech was interrupted several times by the crowd honking their support.
Moe also outlined the Saskatchewan Party’s key campaign commitments to drive a strong recovery and make life more affordable for everyone, including:
- A new Home Renovation Tax Credit that will save homeowners up to $2100 on the cost of their home renovations;
- A 10 per cent reduction in everyone’s power bill for one year;
- The Active Families Benefit that will help families with the cost of their children’s sports and other activities;
- Making tuition costs more affordable by increasing the Saskatchewan Advantage Scholarship by $1000 over four years;
- Making life more affordable for low income seniors by increasing the Seniors Income Plan to $360 per month; and
- Increased supports for persons living with diabetes and parents of children with autism.
“The ballot question in this election is - who do you trust to lead Saskatchewan’s economic recovery? The Saskatchewan Party has the best plan for a strong economy, strong communities, strong families and a strong Saskatchewan.”
