Rural crime and internet access among the issues to be discussed at SARM meeting in Regina

Rural crime, internet access and drought aid are expected to be among the issues raised at the SARM annual meeting in Regina this week.

The meeting opens Tuesday with a presentation from Government Relations minister Don McMorris and SARM president Ray Orb.

Orb says as many as 2,000 delegates will be at the meeting.

He says SARM has set up a task force to improve rural broadband services.

He adds setting up rural crime watch areas is also under discussion.

Orb says delegates are looking forward to an in-person meeting after almost 2 years of COVID-19 disruptions.
