A partial sale of Sasktel was very close to materializing according to the provincial NDP.
A new report released by the Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner shows the Sask Party government had a secret committee that would exchange information with potential buyers, something the NDP says put the crown corporation at risk.
Finance Critic Trent Wotherspoon says this government has been dishonest to Saskatchewan people.
“We’ve now learned that those proposals or this consideration was way further down the path, than that government was ever pretending, and Saskatchewan people deserve to know the facts around those deliberations, those proposals and, of course, that represents a massive broken promise and betrayal of Saskatchewan people.” Wotherspoon said.
Premier Scott Moe responded by stating the province has not intentions to the sell any part of the crowns, and have been that way since 2017. He adds the provincial NDP are using scare tactics that they also used in previous elections.
