Premier Moe to meet with Prime Minister Trudeau on Tuesday in Ottawa

The premier of Saskatchewan will be in Ottawa on Tuesday to have his meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In a statement from Premier Scott Moe, he said he looks forward to having a productive meeting with the prime minister.

Moe has been in communication with Trudeau and his office to set up a meeting between the two leaders since the end of the federal election.

“I raised three Saskatchewan priorities that I will be emphasizing with the Prime Minister: adjusting the inequitable equalization formula, putting a one-year pause on the carbon tax so federal and provincial officials can re-evaluate Saskatchewan’s plan to address climate change, and expanding market access for Saskatchewan exports,” said Moe in his statement.

“In each case, we are proposing reasonable actions the Prime Minister and his minority government can take that will show he is prepared to address the concerns and frustrations of Saskatchewan people.”
