Saskatchewan finance Minister Ken Krawetz (KRAV'-itz) delivered a budget that touts no new taxes but makes changes to tax incentives for middle-class families, graduates and the potash industry. He says the province is focusing on growing the economy despite low oil prices. Oil revenue is down 661-million dollars from last year's budget and Krawetz says that trend will continue. (This year's budget hinges on oil averaging 53 US dollars a barrel in 2015 and 67 dollars in 2016. The price has hovered around 40 US dollars per barrel this week.)
