Rink grant, more funds for veterans services on Sask. Party election agenda

MOOSE JAW, Sask. — Leader Scott Moe is promising to bring back a grant program for community rinks and increase funding to a veterans services organization if the Saskatchewan Party is re-elected on Oct. 26.

Moe says the grant would support more than 600 rinks with $2,500 each.

He says it would cost $1.7 million each year.

The grant was suspended in 2016 by the Saskatchewan Party government as part of larger budget cuts to deal with a provincial deficit.

Moe has also promised to bump up funding for the Saskatchewan Veteran Service Club Support Program to $1.5 million annually.

Moe says it's all part of his party's promise to build strong communities across the province.
