Why we need action now
Public liquor sales return huge profits to Saskatchewan people — money that can be spent on making life better for families and communities. Public liquor revenues fund schools, hospitals, long-term care homes, provincial parks, highways, and much more.
But the provincial government is putting all those benefits at risk.
Government has begun the process to privatize 40 public liquor stores, and green-lit 12 new private stores.
Every public liquor store in the province earns a profit for Saskatchewan people. We can’t afford to sell off the public assets that are making us money.
At a time when Saskatchewan people are suffering the effects of government cutbacks in health, education, and other areas — it just doesn’t make sense to give away profits from public liquor sales.
Join us in saying NO to liquor store privatization by sending a message via this form.
$115 million in public profits lost in the first five years of liquor privatization. That’s enough to pay 240 RNs to provide care over that time period.
