The NDP is calling for a better treatment strategy to deal with a crystal meth epidemic in Saskatchewan.
NDP critic Yens Pedersen says crystal meth and other chemical addictions are the main cause of a rising crime rate across Saskatchewan.
In response, Health minister Jim Reiter says the province has taken several steps, including an increase in the number of addiction beds and increased spending on treating addictions.
Also, the Opposition NDP is again calling on expanded funding for education services across Saskatchewan. But Justice minister Don Morgan says the oposition should join the province in fighting the federal carbon tax, pointing out the tax will cost school boards 8 million dollars a year.
The province says it added 30 million dollars in the operating budget for schools this past year.
