Campaign Politics - Saskatchewan


CPAC's Ed Watson reports on the provincial election in Saskatchewan, where Premier Brad Wall and the Saskatchewan party are seeking a third consecutive term.

Like most resource rich-provinces, Saskatchewan has felt the effects of low oil and potash prices. The Wall government, despite having the most popular premier in Canada, is justifiably concerned about how the electorate will judge them come voting day.

The NDP, led by Cam Broten, has accused the government of mismanaging the budget surpluses accumulated over the past decade. Emergency room wait times are still high here and the government’s move towards allowing private MRI clinics and other private services are issues the NDP hope to capitalize on.

Voters in the province go to the polls April 4, 2016.
