REGINA — The leaders of Saskatchewan's two main political parties have held their only debate in the campaign for the April 4 election.

It was a spirited affair, with Saskatchewan Party Leader Brad Wall and NDP Leader Cam Broten taking shots at each other and sometimes shouting.

Broten went after Wall for draining the province's rainy day savings account through its use of public-private partnerships to build news schools and a new hospital.

Wall countered by saying the P3 schools are actually saving the province money.

Broten accused Wall of making cuts to education and health care, and Wall bristled, denying there have been any cuts.

The NDP leader said he enjoyed the debate, while Wall accused Broten of not articulating his platform and just having an angry list of complaints.
