In his March 18, 2016 Regina Leader Post article, Murray Mandryk accuses the NDP of being ‘stupid’ to bring up the fact the Sask. Party has been hell-bent on privatization. 
Stating that “Brad Wall has had eight years in power to sell off what ever he wanted — yet hasn’t.”
Get your head out of the sand Murray.  Google ‘Crowns Wall privatized’ and you will see he has privatized/sold some 56 pieces of Crowns. That is 56 — many of whom were money-making subsidiaries of Sask. Power, SaskTel, Sask. Energy and SGI. SaskTel alone has been forced to divest itself of Max and high speed internet services, e-mail and conference call services, Navigata, Direct West, the Saskatoon Square building, and the Hospitality Network
Ever wonder why provincial park fees keep rising? Wall sells 23 park-owned cabins at Greenwater Lake Park.
Seasonal campsites in Cypress Park and wood cutting and trail maintenance, and cleaning visitor services — contracted out. Enforcement and compliance services at Sask. Landing — contracted out.
Brad Wall boasts of the changes he has made to health care. He has such, as 13 different health-care projects ranging from laundry service, day surgeries, to care homes — privatized.
If Wall is returned and follows through on his Liquor Board store sales, every small community will not only lose two or more families, but will also be left with valuable real estate and buildings that will be either sold cheap to his friends or abandoned.
I would say the NDP concerns are indeed genuine and not “old news.”
 Joyce Neufeld, Waldeck, Sask.
