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.”
