Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation gives budget an 'F'

Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation gives budget an 'F'

Of course they did...  It shouldn't be hard to figure that out... they voted almost overwhelmingly against the Saskatchewan Party.

Seriously, here are the results from the election, pay close attention to the polls in Sandy Bay, Kinoosao and Deschambeault Lake, notice anything?  These are all PBCN polls.  They all went NDP by massively large percentages.  You might as well go to Wood River and ask any random group of people what they thought of the budget.

Notwithstanding that PBCN may have some real concerns - longer travel time to get hunting and fishing permits they don't need, and the ending of an agreement with a monopolistic marketing board that First Nations are calling on Ottawa to end anyways, I would hardly give the budget an F.

Of course, this budget had very little money for anybody with their hand out, and maybe that's the point.  First Nations have called for more funding for all of their issues for the last 2 months, and the budget had nothing for them.

Better luck tomorrow PBCN.

PS: Wood River is where the Saskatchewan Party won its highest percentage of vote.
