STAND AGAINST THE CUTS

The Sask Party government introduced an austerity 2017-18 budget that makes devastating cuts to public services, life harder and more expensive for Saskatchewan families, and puts people out of work.

The provincial budget delivered on March 22nd was the cruelest, harshest budget in Saskatchewan’s history.  

It’s not just one budget. The 2017-18 budget sets a harmful plan over the next three years:

  • deep, devastating, and irreversible cuts to public services such as health care, education, and social services.
  • job losses and wage cuts that hurt both families and the economy,
  • cuts to cities and towns leaving you to pay more as everyday services get reduced;
  • selling-off and privatizing Crown Corporations including STC; and
  • creating an unfair tax system that makes working families pay more in consumption taxes while the wealthy get extra breaks.

The Sask Party government is making you pay a high price for their mismanagement.

It’s the wrong priority, and it’s bad for the economy and the people of Saskatchewan.

Together, let’s Stand Against the Cuts.

TAKE ACTION and SPREAD THE WORD:

Stand Against the Cuts – Send a Letter

The provincial budget delivered on March 22nd was the cruelest, harshest budget in Saskatchewan’s history.

The Sask Party government’s cuts to public services, to public sector organizations and the closure of the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC) will have devastating consequences for working families in this province. This mean-spirited budget means that hundreds of cancer patients no longer have STC to get to medical appointments. Municipalities have been forced to cuts services and raise taxes. Our children will lose support in the classroom with education cuts. And families across the province will have to pay more for essential public services – like hearing aids, sleep apnea equipment and long term care beds.

We need to speak out against the cuts. Please send a letter to the Sask Party today.

Did you know that reversing the misguided tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy could actually fund many of the harmful cuts the Sask Party is making in its budget?
