Thoughts around the province are turning to the New Year but as we get set, our local politicians are looking back on the year that was 2012.

Moose Jaw North MLA Warren Michelson was very pleased with the way the province has grown over the last year and our growth locally.

"I think Moose Jaw in itself is growing. When you look at some of the events we've brought in, I think that's pretty special. I think the construction boom in Moose Jaw is going very well and the advancement on the new hospital is huge."

Shovels are expected to be in the ground this spring for the new hospital, something that Michelson is very excited to see.

Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence is looking back on what he calls a successful year in Saskatchewan.

"The biggest highlight this year was being part of developing the Vision 2020 and Beyond Growth Plan for Saskatchewan. Also, planning for the infrastructure for the future of the province and ensuring that we have an educated workforce that is ready to go."

For 2013, Lawrence is excited to see the ground breaking for the new regional hospital in the spring and continuing to ensure that Saskatchewan is ready to grow and more people move to our province.
