Saskatchewan Party MLA Darryl Hickie knows why the NDP have been so silent on the recent announcement of four new private liquor stores in Saskatchewan - it's because many of them, including new leader Cam Broten, are now part-owners. One of the first new private liquor stores is expected to open by the end of the year - and it's owned by the Saskatoon Co-op! Broten and his several of his current and former colleagues have memberships in the Saskatoon Co-op.

Moose Jaw hospital sod-turning

With construction now underway, the new state-of-the-art facility built using LEAN design principles is expected to open in the summer of 2015.

More NDP misinformation

Posted On May 1, 2013
Carrot River Valley Fred Bradshaw delivers a Members Statement on more NDP misinformation (text below): Last night during estimates, the Member from Athabasca accused the Minister of Highways of firing 90 frontline highway workers. But just like his leader the day before, the Member from Athabasca is wrong Mr. Speaker. On Monday, the NDP's leader stood in this house and falsely claimed -- twice - that there were 47 patients stranded in the hallways of St. Paul's hospital in Saskatoon last week. We now know that's not true, but the NDP Leader still hasn't had the decency to stand up, retract his statements and set the record straight. So last night, the Member for Athabasca decided to follow his Leader's bad example. He claimed 90 Highway workers were fired, when in fact not a single front-line highway worker was fired. So just to review... The Leader of the Opposition talks about 47 patients in the hallways -- that don't exist. The NDP Highways critic talks about 90 fired Highways workers -- that don't exist. It kind of reminds me of Dwain Lingenfelter's 1100 phony NDP memberships - that didn't exist. Mr. Speaker, the members opposite may have a different leader, but they're still the same old NDP.

SaskNDP support essential services

Posted On May 1, 2013
During Question Period in the Saskatchewan legislature, NDP leader Cam Broten asks the Premier to include essential services provisions in the new Saskatchewan Employment Act. This is a sharp, but welcome, turn from the position in the NDP's disastrous 2011 election platform in which they did NOT support essential services legislation. Ironically, Broten helped write that platform.

More SaskNDP Fear Mongering

Posted On April 30, 2013
Battlefords MLA Herb Cox reads a Members' Statement in the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan calling the NDP out for spreading misinformation. Here's the transcript of that statement: Mr. Speaker, yesterday, the Leader of the Opposition stood in this House and said -- twice -- that there were 47 patients left in the hallways at St. Paul's hospital last Thursday. The Minister of Health was very concerned to hear this and looked into it immediately. Here's what he found out. It is not accurate. According to the Saskatoon Health Region, there was a Norwalk outbreak in one of the units at St. Paul's so they could not move patients in or out of that unit. That led to an overcapacity issue, and five patients being treated in the hallway before they could be moved to a room. NOT 47 as the NDP leader claimed - twice. Mr. Speaker, when the NDP brings forward legitimate concerns about our health system the Minister of Health has a responsibility to look into those concerns. But the NDP Leader also has a responsibility. He has a responsibility to bring forward accurate information and not be making false claims and giving misinformation on the floor of this Assembly. His statements yesterday about 47 patients stuck in the hallways were not only wrong, they were irresponsible and they were fear-mongering. Mr. Speaker, we will always look into the concerns that are being raised about the health system. We know there is more work to be done. But the NDP Leader needs to get his facts straight and not be making false claims about our health system. Will he stand in his place, apologize for these false claims and correct the record?

Letter to Larry Hubich

Posted On February 14, 2012
GOVERNMENT REMAINS COMMITTED TO ESSENTIAL SERVICES, SEEKS LABOUR INPUT ON LEGISLATION Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan, today wrote to Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) President Larry Hubich to invite the input of the SFL into changes to the government's essential services legislation in light of last week's court decision. "We remain committed to ensuring the health and safety of all Saskatchewan people in the event of a public sector work disruption," Morgan said. "We appreciate that consultation with organized labour is key to helping us achieve this goal, not only to address constitutional obligations, but to help us to develop proper and effective systems for ensuring the continued delivery to the public of essential services during labour disputes." Morgan's letter invites the SFL to provide its written views on amendments to The Public Service Essential Services Act to make the legislation Charter compliant and provide appropriate protection for public health and safety during labour disruptions. Morgan also requested a meeting with Hubich, once the written submission is provided. Last week, the Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench found the Act to be unconstitutional, but delayed the effect of the ruling for 12 months to permit the government an opportunity to consider changes to the legislation. "This represents an opportunity for government and organized labour to work together," Morgan said. "I believe we can find a way to balance the need for a workable legislative solution which ensures the provision of essential services to the public and which complies with our constitutional obligations."

The professional EMTs who provide lifesaving services through the STARS program would never make medical decisions based on whether or not someone’s donated money. It’s disgusting that the NDP would even make that suggestion," Eagles said. "The STARS initiative is about saving lives, not playing politics. It is reflective of our government's commitment to moving Saskatchewan forward – it’s unfortunate to see such petty cynicism from the NDP opposition.”
