REGINA – Premier Brad Wall is touting his government’s economic plan, saying it will carry Saskatchewan through challenging times brought on by low oil prices.

His comments come on the last day of the spring sitting at the provincial legislature.

In March, the government tabled a budget that included changes to tax incentives to help fill government coffers after a revenue shortfall of $661 million.

Wall says the New Democrats have failed to bring forward a competing vision for the economy and instead focused on health issues.

NDP Leader Cam Broten says the Opposition raised a number of economic issues, including procurement policy and energy diversification.

He adds that the government isn’t taking seniors care seriously after a report released on Wednesday found that the long-term care system has gaps and is strained.
