Premier Brad Wall hopes a new well cleanup program will help stimulate Saskatchewan’s economy.
Wall presented a proposal of an Accelerated Well Cleanup Program to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
He says the program would provide jobs to unemployed oil sector workers.
“We’re asking the federal government support the program to the tune of about 156-million dollars. We would be able to clean up around 1000 wells.”
Wall says the program would create about 12-hundred jobs in the oil and gas support industry.
