Saskatchewan Government should launch a certificate program in organic farming

Tuesday October 21, 2014

Regina and Lloydminster, Saskatchewan – A Saskatchewan Green Party government would launch a certificate program in organic farming. There are no post-secondary programs in organic farming in Saskatchewan at the present time. Saskatchewan Greens Leader Victor Lau says a certificate program would help add value to organic farming. “Not only would a certificate program in organic farming encourage more new farmers to go into organic production, but it would result in more research and economic development in the organic sector as well,” says Lau. Lloydminster by-election candidate Luke Bonsan notes that in addition to this certificate program being offered at the University of Saskatchewan, it could also be offered at the Saskatchewan Polytechnic campuses. As of 2011, Statistics Canada reports that there were 1,015 organic farm operations in Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan people deserve more Open, Transparent and Accountable Government

Tuesday October 21, 2014

Regina and Lloydminster, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Green Party believes the idea of more Open, Transparent and Accountable(OAT) government is a priority for voters in the November 13th by-election in the Lloydminster constituency. Saskatchewan Greens Leader says democracy can only flourish in Saskatchewan if the government serves the people, not the other way around. “We must always be vigilant and never allow any government to run our individual lives,” says Lau. “Every person in Saskatchewan has a direct stake in keeping our provincial government accountable and approachable.” Lloydminster candidate Luke Bonsan says voters in the constituency live a long way from Regina and therefore feel somewhat removed from our province’s centre of power.

A Saskatchewan Green Party Government would enhance our democracy by adopting a Mixed Member Proportional voting system like the one in Germany, end corporate and union donations to political parties, and review all government operations using OAT principles to ensure citizens are well served . Bonsan also points out that the conversion to Crown Co-ops would be an important step towards creating more participatory democracy in Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan Greens would turn Crown Corporations into Crown Co-operatives

Monday October 20, 2014

Regina and Lloydminster, Saskatchewan – A Saskatchewan Green Party Government would turn the province’s Crown Corporations into Crown Co-operatives. Our party is absolutely opposed to privatizing Crown Corporations. But Saskatchewan Greens Leader Victor Lau says leaving the Crowns as they are without reforming them is also unacceptable. “The Crowns were established to serve the people of Saskatchewan, not the politicians,” says Lau. “The Crown Co-operatives Act would return the Crowns to their original purpose and permanently end backdoor taxation of the public.” Crown Co-ops would still be owned by the Saskatchewan Government to prevent them from being privatized. But the Crowns would be restructured to operate using Co-operative principles by selling a $5 membership fee to Crown utility customers. In return, Crown Co-op members would receive the following benefits:

• Each Crown Co-op would be required to hold a public Annual General Meeting every year where the Minister responsible, board members and executives would be required to attend and answer questions from the member-owners,

• Crown Co-op dividends would be paid to the member-owners instead of to the government,

• Member-owners would get to elect the Board of Directors of each Crown Co-op, and

• Each Crown Co-op would be required to publish quarterly financial statements according to generally accepted accounting principles.

“Instead of privatizing the Crowns for profit, Crown Co-ops would operate democratically and be completely accountable to the public and serve Saskatchewan citizens once again” says Luke Bonsan, the Sask Greens candidate in the November 13th Lloydminster by-election.
