We need to start talking about the Indigenous homelessness crisis in Saskatchewan.

Are we really going to say it's ok for a city like Prince Albert - where 99% of the people who are homeless are Indigenous and 99% of the downtown business owners are white - to deal with this "problem" in such a racist way as hiring a private security firm to hassle Indigenous people in the downtown core, pushing them out of public spaces, and harassing them for being in a public space?

Prince Albert Downtown hiring private security to "do your dirty work" of policing and harassing homeless Indigenous people due to white fear in public spaces is shameful. Do better.

A great send off for Bonnie Morton yesterday as she retires from 34 years of work with RAPM. Many thanks to all who came out to celebrate, to Wesley United Church for providing the venue and beverages and to Nelson Bird for being such a masterful MC!

Last week, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives released updated numbers on what workers would have to make per hour to earn a living wage in Regina and Saskatoon.

The Sask. Party's plan to introduce a $15 minimum wage by 2024 is too low and too slow.

Workers can't wait any longer. They need a raise now.

What was the last researched amount?

And These Numbers NOT Based On "Today's" Costs... ( Data Used For These Things At Least A Year Old) "Making It By" Wage Today Is $ 20... By 2024 When Sask Party Hits $15, It Will Be $25.... EXACTLY As It HAS ALWAYS BEEN... $ 10/hr BEHIND...
