Ten things to know about the 2018 Saskatchewan budget
I’ve written a ‘top 10’ blog post about the recently-tabled Saskatchewan budget. Points raised in the blog post include the following:
-This year’s budget was quite status quo.
-Last year’s budget, by contrast, included a series of cuts to social spending. Last year’s budget also announced cuts to both personal and corporate income taxes that were subsequently reversed.
-Saskatchewan has one of the lowest debt-to-GDP ratios in Canada.
-This recent budget announced the phase out of a rent supplement program that helps low-income households afford rent on the private market.
Here’s the link to the full blog post.
