This isn’t right. It’s time to fix Equalization. . . . #fixequalization
Many Saskatchewan people believe the federal Equalization program is inherently unfair. In just the past 11 years, more than $190 billion has been paid out in Equalization to various provinces, and Saskatchewan has received $0. Some say that we have received a significant share of Equalization over the history of the program because of all the years we were a “have not” province under the NDP. Actually, that’s not true. Since Equalization was first introduced in 1957, Saskatchewan has received less than 2% of the $430 billion paid out over the past 62 years, and Quebec has received $221 billion - over 50%. In the past 11 years, while Saskatchewan received $0, Quebec received nearly $100 billion, or 56%, of the $177 billion paid out. Something must change. Our government is considering changes to Equalization and will put forward our proposal soon.
Did you know that over the past 11 years, Quebec has received nearly $100 BILLION in equalization payments while Saskatchewan received 0️⃣? • This has to change. #FixEqualization
My father has been the steadfast example of an honest, hardworking man all his life.. always busy, but also a source of calm to every room he enters. . He has inspired me as a dad to Carter & Taryn, who remind me of the blessing of fatherhood every day. . To all dads across Saskatchewan.. happy Father’s Day.

Thanks Yorkton Chamber for hosting a great lunch and chat this afternoon. Good turnout from the community, as well as our local @saskparty MLAs @gregottenbreit and Warren Kaeding in the house.
Nice podium sign at Ontario Premier-designate @fordnationdougford’s first announcement: scrapping the carbon tax. Saskatchewan is pleased to have another ally in fighting this punitive, ineffective tax on our people.
