NDP hits campaign trail in Saskatchewan with talk of a fund for the future

REGINA - The NDP has started the first full day of the Saskatchewan election campaign by unveiling details of a fund for the future that would be fuelled with resource cash.

And the plan starts with a review of the revenue from potash.

NDP Leader Dwain Lingenfelter says preliminary plans have been made for an independent expert review that would begin in December.

Lingenfelter says the review would ensure that people fairly benefit from non-renewable resource money, which would go into the proposed Bright Futures Fund.

The NDP says it would invest a minimum of $100 million a year into the fund.

The Saskatchewan Party claims that promise, along with others already made by the NDP, will cost more than one billion dollars.
