Business liked throne speech, labour not so much

Business leaders generally liked the business-friendly tone of Wednesday’s throne speech, especially the Sask. Party government’s promised tax incentives for manufacturing and processing companies, and renewed commitment to public-private partnerships, internal free trade and infrastructure spending. But the NDP and organized labour said the speech from the throne went too far to appease the business lobby and not far enough in dealing with the problems of farmers and other working people, like the rising cost of living, flooding and grain transportation issues and unfair competition from out-of-province firms.
