The Saskatchewan budget, and the fallout from it, continues to be a thorn in Premier Brad Wall’s side.
In a recent poll done by Mainstreet Research, in terms of popularity, 46 per cent of people who were surveyed approve of Saskatchewan’s leader, while a close 45 per cent disapprove of Wall.
When it comes to the budget itself, 26 per cent of people agreed with the budget, 45 per cent disagreed, and 18 per cent weren’t sure.
The study also polled those on other aspects of the budget such as the closure of STC and cuts to the grants-in-lieu program.
51 per cent of those polled were opposed to STC shutting down, while 63 per cent were against the end of the grants-in-lieu program.
On the expansion of the provincial sales tax and funding cuts to libraries and universities, 43 per cent were against the PST change, and 49 per cent weren’t in favour of the slashing of library and university funding.
Over 17-hundred people took part in the survey.
