Seniors need transport support

Dear Editor:
Sask Party MLA’s have very short memories. There was a petition given to legislative session on Dec. 4, 2018. There was over 400 signatures presented to the government. This petition fell on deaf ears.
Warren Kaeding and Sask Party are going to have seniors voice their concerns. Sask Party made the biggest mistake of any political party in Saskatchewan history by destroying network of STC for rural seniors. STC lost money on passengers service, but their freight made money for STC. Cities of Saskatchewan do subsidize their transit system with cities taxpayers money. Private sector will not run any business if they are going to lose money.
Sask Party has uprooted seniors from their communities to bigger centers where there is specialized medical services and a transportation system in place.
Therefore, Sask Party must subsidize transportation services for seniors in rural communities. Seniors of Saskatchewan worked hard and paid lots of taxes to have a better lifestyle for themselves and future generations.
Sask Party with a stroke of a pen, destroyed network of transportation (STC), caused lots of financial hardship and stress that seniors don’t need. Warren Kaeding and Sask Party are not concerned about seniors. What other unknown surprises do you have in store for seniors of Saskatchewan?
