Harm reduction saves money, and more importantly, lives
Saskatchewan is currently facing down an addiction crisis that has cut like a scythe through our communities and we have yet to take the kind of bold action needed to save lives.

15$ Minimum Wage: the economics. We all do better when we all do better
A 15$ minimum wage is a critical way to decrease poverty and improve the economy. Many communities that have raised their minimum wage have seen positive impacts on employment.
The 72,000 Saskatchewan children living in poverty deserve better
No one should live in poverty, but that a job doesn’t guarantee freedom from poverty points to larger problems that this government has failed to address.
