The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to working with Premier Scott Moe.
CEO Steve McLellan says Moe brings a fresh but knowledgeable perspective to issues of importance for the province.
“He is obviously a dedicated public servant, and knows the province well, knows the rural and the urban, and knows some of the critical issues,” McLellan says. “The whole reduction of greenhouse gasses was something in his ministerial portfolio he was active on, the carbon tax is important to us and important to Saskatchewan in the fact that we don’t get one.”
McLellan says he is hopeful and encouraged by the election of Moe.
“This is a huge transition, but one that we think Premier Moe will handle very well, and help lead us as a province forward.”
McLellan adds the Chamber supports Moe’s plan to raise investment in the education system as well as enhance exports.
