Saskatchewan Green Party Government will eliminate the province’s debt in seven years

Saturday April 2, 2016

Regina, Saskatchewan – A Saskatchewan Green Party Government would roll out a plan within its first 100 days in power to eliminate the province’s $13.3-billion debt in seven years. In the current 2015-2016 fiscal year, the provinces’ debt grew by $1.4-billion, which is almost the same amount that was spent to build the Carbon Capture Boondoggle near Estevan. Party Leader Victor Lau says if it wasn’t for foolish spending like the Carbon Capture misadventure, Saskatchewan’s overall debt could be much lower by now. “Saskatchewan people are headed for fiscal trouble if we continue to waste our precious resources on failed ideas like Carbon Capture,” says Lau. “Therefore the time has come for a serious debt elimination program in Saskatchewan.”

The first part of the debt elimination plan is to hold the line on government spending past 2016 at $14.4-billion., so that any increase in government revenue can be devoted to eliminating the debt. The second part is the participatory democracy action plan, where government and Crown Co-operative employees and the general public will get to make recommendations on where best to cut government spending. “Our government won’t cut government spending without consulting Saskatchewan people first,” says Lau. “No action will be taken to reduce spending unless it has the strong support of the people of this province.” Real Change is coming to Saskatchewan in the provincial election on April 4, 2016.

Saskatchewan Green Party Government will balance the budget first year in power

Friday April 1, 2016

Regina, Saskatchewan – It is high time to end deficit budgeting in the Saskatchewan Government and opt for Real Change instead. The Saskatchewan Green Party is strongly committed to balance the provincial budget during its first year in power. Party Leader Victor Lau says the people of Saskatchewan are tired of seeing their futures mortgaged because successive NDP and conservative governments can’t get public spending under control. “Every bit of deficit financing is future taxation,” says Lau. “And it’s future taxation that won’t be used to end poverty or help create an economic climate for entrepreneurship.” Lau says the SaskGreens will bring public spending under control through the Participatory Democracy process. Under Participatory Democracy, the people of Saskatchewan will tell MLAs how to bring public spending under control using letters, social media, email, telephone calls, or town hall meetings, after the government lays out the facts and provides people with different budget options. There will be no Real Change in Saskatchewan until public spending is brought under control.
