Strong Moose Jaw, Strong Saskatchewan

Strong Moose Jaw, Strong Saskatchewan October 24, 2020

Premier Scott Moe kicked off the final weekend of the election campaign this morning in Moose Jaw, where he asked voters to elect Saskatchewan Party candidates Greg Lawrence and Tim McLeod.

“Greg Lawrence has been a strong voice for Moose Jaw in our Saskatchewan Party government and I’m looking forward to having Tim McLeod join him in the Legislature,” Moe said. 

Premier Moe said Greg Lawrence and retiring MLA Warren Michelson both played a huge role in the bringing many important government investments to Moose Jaw, including:

  • The $80 million Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility opened in 2015;
  • The first new school in more than 60 years – a $50 million joint use facility to be constructed in the Westheath neighbourhood;
  • A $12 million renovation of Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Moose Jaw campus;
  • New funding to support the delivery of a variety of education and skills training programs at Saskatchewan Polytechnic;
  • $4.8 million in funding under the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP), most of which will be allocated to the construction of a new pumphouse at the city’s High Service Reservoir; and
  • A $1 million contribution to support improvements at the Moose Jaw Municipal Airport, including the expansion of the existing runway and taxiway to accommodate larger planes.

“A re-elected Saskatchewan Party government will keep building strong communities like Moose Jaw,” Moe said.  “We have a plan for a strong recovery and plan to make life more affordable for everyone by reducing your power bill and reducing the cost of your home renovations.

“Greg Lawrence and Tim McLeod will play a big role in helping a Saskatchewan Party government deliver on our plan for a strong recovery and a strong Moose Jaw, so I am asking Moose Jaw voters to support them on Election Day.”

Voters can cast their ballots at an advance poll from noon until 8 pm today or on Election Day, this Monday, October 26th from 9 am until 8 pm.

“A strong economy, strong families, and strong communities like Moose Jaw – that’s our plan for a strong Saskatchewan.”
