Indigenous education could provide $90B boost to Sask. economy says U of S professor
Erasing the province's billion-dollar deficit will require bold moves, but a University of Saskatchewan professor says his solution is "a no brainer."
U of S economist Eric Howe says improving the levels of education and employment for Indigenous people would boost the provincial economy by up to $90 billion dollars.
"The amounts are huge," said Howe, who has authored two studies on the issue in recent years.
