Saskatchewan’s Minister of the Economy was travelling to Regina Thursday morning to table a financial report on SaskPower.
But that was about the extent of any normalcy for Bill Boyd who reports a deer nearly went through his windshield
The minister says he collided with the deer about 15 km outside of Kyle.
After checking the condition of his vehicle and the deer, Boyd called the Saskatchewan Legislature in order to notify the radio room to set up a remote news conference.
Boyd says he saw the deer bound across a field and disappear into some brush.
Instead of appearing in person, as most ministers do for these events, Minister Boyd prepared a conference call with the attending reporters.
