The recent item in the Regina Leader Post (Sask. Energy applies for modest increase) no doubt has many Saskatchewan residents seeing red (blue?). That, along with SaskPower’s Jan 1, four per cent increase and SaskTel’s rural residential increase of last year will no doubt have Saskatchewan residents infuriated. But, who should their anger really be directed at?
Brad Wall’s Sask. Party has for years robbed The Crowns of up to 100 per cent of their profits in order to “balance” their budget.
In order for the Crowns to improve, replace and expand their aging infrastructure, they are now forced to borrow money – hence the increases.
The Sask. Party has the audacity to brag about a balanced budget, when in reality what they have done is transfer their incompetent government’s debt onto the Crown Corporations.
Talk about a Premier in Devine clothing.
