Rural Saskatchewan needs Provincial Transportation Strategy

Thursday May 28, 2015

Regina, Saskatchewan – A Saskatchewan Green Party government would bring Real Change in the form of a Provincial Transportation Strategy for rural Saskatchewan. The call for this strategy is included in the party’s Real Change platform for the next provincial election. Party Leader Victor Lau says the Grain Backlog that began in the winter of 2013-2014 highlights the need for such a strategy. “There needs to be a plan in place to ensure the railways are always able to ship grain in this province, under all circumstances, including high oil prices,” says Lau. “Once the strategy is in place, farmers will never again have to worry about getting their product to market.” Lau emphasizes that all stakeholders need to have a direct say in the Sask Green Party government’s developing of any transportation strategy, including farmers and other rural people. The process of putting this strategy in place is the type of Real Change that a Saskatchewan Green Party government will bring to the people of this province.

Saskatchewan’s ‘Clean Coal’ project needs to be held accountable

Wednesday May 27, 2015

Regina, Saskatchewan – Over six months since the official launch of SaskPower’s ‘Clean Coal’ Project at Estevan the people of Saskatchewan have no way to determine if the project is a success. The project cost about $1.4-billion to build. Party Leader Victor Lau says we have no way of knowing if the project’s benchmarks are being hit yet. “A project the scale of the ‘Clean Coal’ initiative should have filed a report with the Legislative Assembly already,” says Lau. “In the meantime, the people of Saskatchewan are being left in the dark about the progress of this mammoth endeavour.” Lau hopes SaskPower will file a report on the Clean Coal project before this fall. The Saskatchewan Green Party believes in open, accountable and transparent government. There will be no Real Change in this province as long as people are not being kept up to date about massive economic investments like the Clean Coal project.

Cabinet Shuffle: are these the wisest choices for Real Change?

Friday May 22, 2015

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Green Party wonders if Premier Wall’s mini-cabinet shuffle is the wisest choices to help make Real Change happen in our province. The mini-shuffle saw Ken Krawetz retire and Kevin Doherty move up to Finance. Don McMorris becomes Deputy Premier, Scott Moe takes over Advanced Education, Jim Reiter adds SaskTel to his duties, and Battlefords MLA Herb Cox joins cabinet to become Environment Minister. Party Leader Victor Lau says these changes are underwhelming, and it’s not clear they are best for Saskatchewan people. “I know that Krawetz had to be dropped as Finance Minister some day because he is retiring as an MLA,” says Lau. “But what do we really know about Kevin Doherty? Is he the wisest choice for Finance Minister?” Lau also wants to know if Cox is qualified to be Environment Minister, given that apparently Cox is a climate change denier. “Saskatchewan people deserve answers to these questions. These individuals are entrusted with getting things done for Saskatchewan people in the name of the Crown.” Lau is happy though that Wall decided not to increase the size of the cabinet from 18.

But Lau also wants to know why Prince Albert is now in its fourth year without cabinet representation. “Prince Albert is a very important economic, social, environmental and political hub in our province,” says Lau. “The people of Prince Albert know they are being snubbed by being denied their own Cabinet Minister. Why is Premier Wall punishing Prince Albert in this way?” Real Change will not happen in Saskatchewan if the size of government continues to grow.
