Calvert mops floor with Wall



    Saskatchewan Party will not be able to make their own economic decisions
    - needs "Enterprise Saskatchewan"

    SASKATOON, Oct. 31 /CNW/ - The Saskatchewan Party's leader was not up to
the task last night when asked direct questions regarding "Enterprise
Saskatchewan" and other important questions asked by the residents of
Saskatchewan.
    "The clear winner of this debate, in my opinion, was Lorne Calvert," said
Sandy Weyland, SEIU Member Political Organizer, "he stood on his government's
impressive record and took both parties to task on their plans for the
province."
    Calvert spoke about their economic successes including 14 balanced
budgets in a row, 16 consecutive credit upgrades and taking the province from
ruin to riches in partnership with the working families and businesses of
Saskatchewan.
    "I think the NDP came out strong from this debate," says Sharleen
Stewart, Canadian International Vice-President of the Service Employees
International Union (SEIU). "Let's hope that Saskatchewan's workers are going
to vote for the party that stands on the side of working families."
    The NDP have well laid out plans for a universal drug plan,
infrastructure, the environment and recruitment and retention in health care
that will benefit all of the residents of Saskatchewan, while the other two
parties are segmenting their plans so that only a few are winners.
    "This election comes down to what you want for your future and your
family," she continues. "The fact is that Saskatchewan boasts one of the
lowest provincial sales tax, has the most cost efficient utility costs and has
the fastest growing economy in Canada. Saskatchewan is the envy of the
nation."

    The Service Employees International Union is the largest and fastest
growing union in North America, with 98,000 workers in Canada and 1.8 million
workers worldwide.
