Manitobans Move To Saskatchewan To Save Money On PST


REGINA - For some Manitobans, it's greener on the other side of the provincial boundary.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation says Saskatchewan has seen a net gain of nearly a thousand people from Manitoba in the past five years.

Spokesman Colin Craig says a big reason is people want to save money.

Manitoba's PST is set to move to eight per cent next month.

Saskatchewan's tax rate is at 5 per cent.

Craig says that Saskatchewan's population has been jumping by thousands of people each year.
