March 31, 2016 – Saskatoon, SK

Today, during an announcement in Saskatoon, the Liberal Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, the Honourable MaryAnn Mihychuk, insulted unemployed workers in southern Saskatchewan.

Kelly Block, Member of Parliament for Carlton Trail – Eagle Creek expressed disappointment that the Minister is deliberately ignoring the plight of unemployed Saskatchewan workers in the southern region of the province.

“Workers in Saskatchewan’s southern oil fields are hurting just as much as those in other regions,” said MP Block. “Additionally, the low price of oil has negatively affected businesses and employees who provide services and products to the oil industry.”

“I can only conclude that this Liberal Government doesn’t care about Saskatchewan.”
