SaskPower President must resign over Smart Meter $47-million Boondoggle

Tuesday August 19, 2014

Regina, Saskatchewan – the Green Party of Saskatchewan is demanding SaskPower President Robert Watson resign over the Crown Corporation’s $47-million Smart Meter Boondoggle. Saskatchewan Greens Leader Victor Lau says growing number of Smart Meter fires and the money wasted on these meters is unacceptable. “The Saskatchewan people have lost almost $50-million on these meters that are potentially behind the recent surge in their SaskPower household power bills across the province,” says Lau. “The fact that these meters are failing is reason enough for everyone in the province to be alarmed.” Lau adds that once Watson has resigned, the Wall Government should consider re-organzising SaskPower as a Crown Co-operative so that the power company will be democratized, which in turn should prevent another boondoogle like the Smart Meters from happening again.

‘SUPER MONDAY’: SaskGreens nominate 4 candidates across the province today

Monday August 18, 2014

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Green Party made huge gains today toward completing its full slate of candidates for the next provincial election. Four candidates were nominated today on ‘Super Monday’ to run in constituencies across the province. Those four candidates are:

• Deanna Robilliard in the Saskatoon Southeast constituency,

• Samuel Hardlotte in the Cumberland constituency,

• Darcy Robilliard in the Biggar-SaskValley constituency, and

• Colleen Kennedy in the Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood constituency.

Saskatchewan Greens Leader Victor Lau says these nominations bring the party a lot closer to having all 61 candidates in place for the 2016 provincial election. “It is really thrilling how the team is coming together so quickly,” says Lau. “It’s very important that we get our candidates nominated now and on the campaign trail as soon as possible.” With the ’Super Monday’ nominations done, the Saskatchewan Greens now have 49 out of 61 candidates nominated for the upcoming election.

Wall Government has explaining to do over slap to Pharmacies in Rural Saskatchewan

Monday August 18, 2014

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Green Party has learned that the Sunrise Health Region has allegedly aggregated the distribution of prescription drugs through one pharmacy in Yorkton. It is alleged that just one pharmacy in the Health Region will distribute prescriptions to hospitals and care homes within the Health Region from now on. Saskatchewan Green Leader Victor Lau says if this allegation is true, then a number of questions need to be posed:

• Was the decision allegedly made to drop small town pharmacies in the Sunrise Health Region from distributing prescriptions to the hospitals and care homes in favour of just one pharmacy?

• Was the alleged choice of the one pharmacy in Yorkton opened up for public tendering?

• How was the alleged decision made to go with one particular pharmacy?

• If this centralization decision was allegedly made, what is the justification for cutting off the small town pharmacies without giving these businesses a chance to replace their lost income?

• How much did it allegedly cost the Sunrise Health Region to carry out the centralization?

• Was any research done by Sunrise or the Ministry of Health to justify this alleged centralization?

• Has the Sunrise Health Region or the Ministry of Health launched a process for monitoring the short and long term effects of this alleged centralization?

“The alleged centralization of distributing prescription drugs within the Sunrise Health Region institutions, if true, is devastating to the economies of the towns and villages with the affected pharmacies,” says Lau. “If the alleged decision was made to centralize these prescription drug distributions, then it’s a case of the Wall Government picking winners and losers in East Central Saskatchewan,” says David Sawkiw, the Saskatchewan Green candidate in the Kelvington-Wadena constituency. Lau says Premier Brad Wall and Health Minister Dustin Duncan need to provide answers to these questions about the alleged centralization scheme; this government needs to be accountable to taxpayers or stand aside when the next election comes in 2016.

For more information, please contact Victor Lau at (306)737-5345 or David Sawkiw at (306)547-4762.
