Hundreds of people took to the steps of the Saskatchewan legislature in yet another protest against provincial budget cuts Wednesday.
The rally, organized by the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees’ Union, was held in opposition to cuts in the latest provincial budget.
Speakers told the crowd how public employers have been sent letters suggesting a 3.5 per cent wage rollback.
Organizers say government mismanagement, and not just the falling price of oil, has led to tough financial times. They say the province’s finances are currently in “crisis.”
