There’s a new Minister in charge of the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA). We need to let Don McMorris know that we want to keep liquor sales in public hands.
Government is closing SLGA stores in four small towns. They are now talking about full-scale privatization of liquor sales in Saskatchewan.
Revenue from public liquor stores helps fund services we all care about, like hospitals, schools, long term care beds, and highways. Public liquor stores earned $232 million for Saskatchewan people last year.
We need to speak up before SLGA stores are sold and an important source of public revenue disappears forever.
