YORKTON, Sask. - The home stretch of the Saskatchewan election campaign is being paved with a promise of help for highways.
NDP Leader Dwain Lingenfelter (LING'-ehn-felt-ehr) says his party will twin Highway 10 from Balgonie (bahl-GOH'-nee) to Yorkton if elected next Monday.
Lingenfelter says rural areas are crucial to the province's economy and their future depends on well-maintained transportation.
The NDP says its election platform allocates $2.48 billion to highways over four years.
But the Saskatchewan Party is waving a red flag.
It says the NDP hasn't properly costed out its promise to twin the highway, as well as another one to the U.S. border, or for building a new bridge in Prince Albert.
