The summer Legislative session wrapped up on July 3rd. Throughout the three-week session we pushed the government to put people first with a decent minimum wage, not the lowest in Canada, in education, long-term care and economic recovery planning, and rejected the Sask. Party’s incomplete and inadequate budget as a pre-election ploy designed to distract from their plans for cuts and sell-offs.

It was also my last session as I will retire at the call of the election expected at the end of September. I want to express my deep gratitude to the people of Saskatoon Centre for allowing me the honour of representing them in the Saskatchewan Legislature since November 2001. I have had the opportunity to serve on both sides of the house starting shortly after 9/11 and now ending with a global pandemic. It has been very rewarding putting people in Saskatchewan!

Cumberland MLA Doyle Vermette presented a bill to develop a suicide prevention strategy, but it was voted down by Sask. Party members – making it the first bill of its kind to be voted down by any jurisdiction in Canada.

Saskatchewan people, who have sacrificed so much in recent months, now face a clear choice between a tired government that won’t be honest about their plans for cuts and sell-offs, and an NDP opposition committed to putting people first or one that will continue to let people down.

Stay safe!
