MLA’s are on their summer break, but they will be busy over the next few months as will Saskatchewan Party leader and Premier Scott Moe and NDP leader Ryan Meili.
Both say they will be out and about touring the province over the next few months talking to Saskatchewan voters about what they are trying to accomplish and what concerns they might have.
Moe says one of those concerns is crime.
“I continue to hear about crime in our communities, “Moe said. “We need to not only address the enforcement of crimes, but continue to address the opportunities that we have to play a part in addressing some of the root causes and social causes that we have in our communities.”
Moe will also be busy travelling.
The premier is attending meetings in Washington, D.C., next week with senators, members of Congress and three senior members of the White House.
He’s also attending the Western Governors Conference in South Dakota from June 25 to 27.
As for Meili, he says he will be criss-crossing the province.
“I’ll be visiting rural Saskatchewan listening to people and working with people to start building a platform of change.” Meili said.
Meili says his summer could get off to a great start if voters in Regina Northeast select Yens Pedersen in a byelection. He says getting a win in the riding left open by the retirement of former finance minister Kevin Doherty would send a strong message. A date for that byelection has not been called.
