Saskatchewan Conservative caucus calls on Liberals to offset increased policing costs for rural communities

The Liberal government excluded other levels of government during the collective agreement negotiations with the National Police Federation, but left municipalities to foot the majority of the bill. Increased costs are much higher than anticipated particularly the one-time backpay costs. Faced with financial constraints, municipalities have asked the federal government to absorb the one-time backpay costs. 

Our Saskatchewan Conservative caucus is also calling on the Liberal government to provide relief to local municipalities in the upcoming federal budget to help offset these policing costs.
