Saskatchewan election 2020: Party leaders Scott Moe, Ryan Meili debate ahead of election | FULL

The leaders of Saskatchewan’s two largest political parties took part in the only televised debate of the election campaign on Wednesday night. The one-hour debate saw Saskatchewan Party Leader Scott Moe and NDP Leader Ryan Meili going head-to-head.

A panelist of journalists – Global’s Allison Bamford, CBC’s Adam Hunter, Postmedia’s Murray Mandryk and Vanier Scholar Merelda Fiddler – asked the party leaders questions centred on COVID-19, the economy, health care and Indigenous issues.

Both leaders were asked about how they would prevent the spread of COVID-19, and if that includes a mask mandate, with Moe saying the public health guidelines that remain in place are effective.

“We have a very clear masking policy that is there today. If you can create that physical distancing a mask is not required,” Moe said.

Meili said he would like a threshold implemented that would require masks. He also criticized Moe on failing to speak out about the anti-mask movement.

While both NDP Leader Ryan Meili and Sask. Party Leader Scott Moe agreed their parties need to engage with Indigenous communities, both had opposing views on how it should be done, with Moe saying engagement needs to come by investing in their economies and Meili stating that more needs to be done to “close the gaps” in healthcare, education, justice and employment.

Moe also said that his party has a plan to balance the budget by 2024, and accused the NDP of having “no plan,” saying that Meili “has a plan to make a plan to balance the budget.”

The debate was a first for Moe and Meili, who both won their party leadership contests two years ago.

    The Secret of All Secret Societies

    The Third Eye. The Pyramids.

    The Third Eye = Telepaths, psychics. Nearly half of the global population is telepathic/psychic. Referred to in the modern day, as 'Awakening/Opening the Third Eye', telepaths/psychics aren't permitted to disclose much information to those who are not awake/aware i.e. telepathic/psychic. There are rules. There is a policing force also made of secret societies.

    The Pyramids = Ancient Pyramids of Egypt. Regarded as mysterious, with questions remaining to present day as to the purpose of their construction, answers are kept hidden within secret societies and the minds of telepaths. Revealed to only those who awaken their third eye and become telepathic, is the marvel of electricity existing in ancient times. Concepts of Free Energy are originally derived from the ancient pyramids, known for producing free electricity in mass volumes, instantaneously. This secret along with the actual methods that were used and needed to produce free energy are kept secret by half the world and regulated by secret societies. The pyramids were turned OFF a long time ago, they can be turned ON today if the secret and hidden powers to be wanted the world to have free energy.

    How? Electrical components, Inductors and Transformers (coils), do not transfer electricity but actually create free electricity. Solar energy fed back into an inductor or transformer, can create unlimited electricity instantaneously. Norms (non-telepaths), are often discouraged and confused when attempting to study electrical engineering or physics due to the false assertion of Electrons. There are no such thing as electrons, they are taught only to confuse norms so they don't figure out the solution to the worlds energy problems.

    There is a reason why the cartoon 'Transformers' was created, along with the lyric in it's theme song, "Transformers – More Than Meets The Eye."

    Mr Meili "Do you support your party's Leap Manifesto and their demand to shut down the Oil Patch, indeed the Oil Industry in the whole" Would you pay net metering to all who want to supply power to the grid at what SPC sells power for and not be able to use it and recoup the cost because they can't resell it and ultimately the coat would be born by the tax payers. Would the NDP close hospitals again while re-opening STC to loose more Tax Payers dollars?

    Mr meili suggests raising minimum wage to $15/hr. It is proven that raising the minimum wage does not help the minimum wage workers because raising the minimum wage also raises the cost of living. Why? This is due to the fact that labour is the highest cost in doing business, meaning if labour costs increase prices must go up also. Some will say it is corporate greed, those people are partially wrong, it is a simple fact that a business must make money in order to stay in business.

    An alleged leaked email about P.M. Trudeau's alleged plan for Canada. I don't know if it's true, but it would be good to save the content and see if the timeline proves true.

    Dear REMOVED,
    I want to provide you some very important information. I’m a committee member within the Liberal Party of Canada. I sit within several committee groups but the information I am providing is originating from the Strategic Planning committee (which is steered by the PMO).
    I need to start off by saying that I’m not happy doing this but I have to. As a Canadian and more importantly as a parent who wants a better future not only for my children but for other children as well. The other reason I am doing this is because roughly 30% of the committee members are not pleased with the direction this will take Canada, but our opinions have been ignored and they plan on moving forward toward their goals. They have also made it very clear that nothing will stop the planned outcomes.
    The road map and aim was set out by the PMO and is as follows:
    – Phase in secondary lock down restrictions on a rolling basis, starting with major metropolitan areas first and expanding outward. Expected by November 2020.
    – Rush the acquisition of (or construction of) isolation facilities across every province and territory. Expected by December 2020.
    – Daily new cases of COVID-19 will surge beyond capacity of testing, including increases in COVID related deaths following the same growth curves. Expected by end of November 2020.
    – Complete and total secondary lock down (much stricter than the first and second rolling phase restrictions). Expected by end of December 2020 – early January 2021
    – Reform and expansion of the unemployment program to be transitioned into the universal basic income program. Expected by Q1 2021.
    – Projected COVID-19 mutation and/or co-infection with secondary virus (referred to as COVID-21) leading to a third wave with much higher mortality rate and higher rate of infection. Expected by February 2021.
    – Daily new cases of COVID-21 hospitalizations and COVID-19 and COVID-21 related deaths will exceed medical care facilities capacity. Expected Q1 – Q2 2021.
    – Enhanced lock down restrictions (referred to as Third Lock Down) will be implemented. Full travel restrictions will be imposed (including inter-province and inter-city). Expected Q2 2021.
    – Transitioning of individuals into the universal basic income program. Expected mid Q2 2021.
    – Projected supply chain break downs, inventory shortages, large economic instability. Expected late Q2 2021.
    – Deployment of military personnel into major metropolitan areas as well as all major roadways to establish travel checkpoints. Restrict travel and movement. Provide logistical support to the area. Expected by Q3 2021.
    Along with that provided road map the Strategic Planning committee was asked to design an effective way of transitioning Canadians to meet a unprecedented economic endeavor. One that would change the face of Canada and forever alter the lives of Canadians. What we were told was that in order to offset what was essentially an economic collapse on a international scale, that the federal government was going to offer Canadians a total debt relief. This is how it works: the federal government will offer to eliminate all personal debts (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc) which all funding will be provided
    to Canada by the IMF under what will become known as the World Debt Reset program. In exchange for acceptance of this total debt forgiveness the individual would forfeit ownership of any and all property and assets forever. The individual would also have to agree to partake in the COVID-19 and COVID-21 vaccination schedule, which would provide the individual with unrestricted travel and unrestricted living even under a full lock down (through the use of photo identification referred to as Canada’s HealthPass) .
    Committee members asked who would become the owner of the forfeited property and assets in that scenario and what would happen to lenders or financial institutions, we were simply told “the World Debt Reset program will handle all of the details”. Several committee members also questioned what would happen to individuals if they refused to participate in the World Debt Reset program, or the HealthPass, or the vaccination schedule, and the answer we got was very troubling. Essentially we were told it was our duty to make sure we came up with a plan to ensure that would never happen. We were told it was in the individuals best interest to participate. When several committee members pushed relentlessly to get an answer we were told that those who refused would first live under the lock down restrictions indefinitely. And that over a short period of time as more Canadians transitioned into the debt forgiveness program, the ones who refused to participate would be deemed a public safety risk and would be relocated into isolation facilities. Once in those facilities they would be given two options, participate in the debt forgiveness program and be released, or stay indefinitely in the isolation facility under the classification of a serious public health risk and have all their assets seized.
    So as you can imagine after hearing all of this it turned into quite the heated discussion and escalated beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed before. In the end it was implied by the PMO that the whole agenda will move forward no matter who agrees with it or not. That it wont just be Canada but in fact all nations will have similar roadmaps and agendas. That we need to take advantage of the situations before us to promote change on a grander scale for the betterment of everyone. The members who were opposed and ones who brought up key issues that would arise from such a thing were completely ignored. Our opinions and concerns were ignored. We were simply told to just do it.
    All I know is that I don’t like it and I think its going to place Canadians into a dark future.
