Meili has promised to bring in a procurement model that would make putting local people to work a priority if his party forms government.

He has criticized the Saskatchewan Party for hiring out-of-province companies to build major infrastructure projects.

Moe says many of the jobs do go to local residents.

Voters go to the polls on Oct. 26.

Over the past few days Moe has criticized Meili over his plan to spend additional millions without a clear indication as to when he would eliminate the projected $2.1 billion provincial deficit.

The NDP leader says the extra spending would pay for hiring more teachers and doctors to shrink class sizes and shorten waitlists.
