The Saskatchewan NDP is promising to send all drivers a $100 rebate if it’s elected to form government this fall.

Leader Ryan Meili pulled out the pre-campaign promise in Regina, where he also committed to reduce auto insurance premiums by seven per cent.

He says the money would come from a Saskatchewan Government Insurance savings fund, which has amassed more than $1 billion.

Meili says it’s fair to return some of the money to ratepayers and residents need a government that works to give families extra money.

It’s the second election promise Meili has made in less than a week, even though the campaign hasn’t officially started for the Oct. 26 election.

The Saskatchewan Party has rolled out a series of attack ads against Meili, labelling him “a risk we can’t afford.”

      That’s a start. The whole no fault insurance should be looked at more in depth and reformed. People shouldn’t have to fight tooth and nail to get the benefits they are entitled to after an injury.
