Scrumming with media mid-day on Wednesday, Premier Brad Wall touched on a breadth of issues, both local and provincial.
‚ÄúWe start each morning, we split up caucus and we get MLA reports, and it is a help to all of us. It is certainly a help to me, to hear what the local issues are in every single corner of Saskatchewan,‚ÄĚ Wall explained.
The consensus thus far among Sask. Party MLAs is that the province should not be building or renovating any more liquor stores and to instead prioritize things like health care, education and highways.
However, before the province moves forward on any initiatives, Wall said that a more formal consultation process with Saskatchewan people needs to take place.
Going into the fall sessions, Wall said that the priorities will be health care, education and highways.
Despite record amounts spent on highways in Saskatchewan, yet more needs to be done, Wall summarized.
‚ÄúOur MLAs are saying that Saskatchewan people are agreeing that we need to do more.‚ÄĚ
