SILTON, Sask. — The road to Premier Brad Wall's latest campaign announcement is lined with hazard signs, crumbling shoulders and potholes.
Wall says it may seem unusual for a party seeking re-election to point out a bumpy road ahead, but he says he's doing that because he knows there's more work to do.
Wall says the Saskatchewan Party will spend $70 million over three years to repair more highways if it wins the April 4 provincial election.
He says the spending has been taken into consideration, even as the province faces a deficit this fiscal year and next.
The premier says the increase in highway repair funding will be the most expensive promise in the Saskatchewan Party's election platform.
Wall has said there will be few campaign promises from his party, because he's trying to watch the province's finances.
