REGINA — Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe is suggesting the federal government is playing favourites with infrastructure funding to give a boost to Liberal-area member of Parliament Ralph Goodale.

The province is in a dispute with Ottawa over how millions in federal infrastructure dollars will flow to projects in different communities.

Moe questions why the federal government is focused on funding for two outdoor swimming pools in Goodale’s Regina riding when they’re not a priority for the province.

He says there’s a long list of other recreational projects Ottawa could consider.

Moe says the infrastructure money is not “Goodale’s re-election fund” for the vote in October.

The federal government recently announced it had approved funding for 13 of Saskatchewan’s infrastructure projects and would be likely to approve more.
