From the Premier’s Desk
I’m optimistic about what’s to come in Saskatchewan, and we must always remember the progress we have made in the last decade. After years of decline under the NDP, our province is now and can forever be the very best place to live, work, and raise a family in Canada. We can chart our own course – we can chart our own future. This time in Saskatchewan, right now, belongs us to us, the people of Saskatchewan. We will not let the NDP throw obstacles in our way, and we will continue to tell the Saskatchewan story around the world.
I will always stand with Saskatchewan and the great people that reside across this great province. I invite you to stand with me.
God bless our great province.
