Week one is over.
Premier Scott Moe has finished his first week of leading his party in the Legislature, while Ryan Meili, the leader of the official opposition Saskatchewan NDP, is in the same position.
For Moe, he said the first sitting was exciting to be a part of.
“What I’m most proud of is the opportunity is the opportunity to sit up there with all of cabinet and see the strength and depth of the cabinet and cabinet ministers we have here in the province of Saskatchewan.”
Moe said something that has caught his attention is the already healthy and engaging debate from both sides of aisle.
- Spring sitting of Saskatchewan Legislature returns surrounded with intrigue
- “Welcoming” attitude noticeable during first 2018 Saskatchewan Legislature sitting
- Debate is heated in the Saskatchewan legislature over carbon tax
“There’s a few questions that I’ve taken every day and they’re very good questions,” he said. “The NDP is asking pertinent questions for people of the province of Saskatchewan and we’re trying to provide pertinent answers as quick as we possibly can.”
For Meili’s part, he harked back to one of the first few questions asked during the first session of 2018, when the two sides spoke about opportunity to collaborate.
He said he’s noticed how actively engaged both sides of the aisle are on improving the welfare of Saskatchewan businesses, communities and families.
“I’ve noticed a little bit more of an effort towards civility and looking to be collaborative from our side,” said Meili. “It seems to have been received well on theirs.”
