Giv­ing thanks to the peo­ple

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Opin­ion -

Ed­i­tor:

As we ap­proach the wrap of har­vest in the South­west and we head to­wards thanks­giv­ing, we must give no thanks to those who made us pay a lit­tle more this year the Sask. Party.

The in­crease in taxes and cuts to fam­i­lies who had to pay more on kids cloth­ing and gro­ceries made it harder to send the kids to school this year

Cuts to rental hous­ing sup­ple­ment makes it ad­di­tional hard for lower in­come fam­i­lies to make it to school.

We can­not thank Mr. Moe, Mr. Hind­ley and the rest of the Sask. Party for that.

In real­ity, we must thank the good peo­ple of our great prov­ince who stood up against sell­ing of crown cor­po­ra­tions, try­ing to cut our li­braries (which was just put on hold never of­fi­cially ended) and the ax­ing of jobs. We must thank the hard work­ing women and men who stand up against the wage freezes and job cuts by the Sask. Party.

So as we give thanks this year to our great peo­ple in prov­ince of Saskatchew­an, re­mem­ber who we are re­ally thank­ing.
