Sask. Party attacks NDP on funding
The Saskatchewan Party called out the NDP on the lack of details for funding new programmes on Tuesday, the first day of the election season, for things like increased health care beds, rent control, and the "bright futures fund".
"All of those kinds of things come with a substantial price tag," said Bill Boyd of the Saskatchewan Party, who had his own ideas about where the NDP would come up with the funds.
"There's really only two sources, either raise taxes or cut other programmes."
NDP leader Dwain Lingenfelter said he's not surprised that the Sask Party is going on the offensive.
"After two years of attacks I don't expect that the premiere is going to change his strategy," said Lingenfelter.
"I think the public will understands when we release all the documents that this is fully funded and affordable."
Lingenfelter maintained that their funding plans will be revealed in the coming weeks.
