The fall sitting of the legislative session has ended, and Premier Scott Moe said the government delivered on their priorities for the economy and residents of Saskatchewan.
In a release, Moe said the government's commitment to balance the budget, continue to fight against the federal carbon tax, increase year-over-year employment, focus on safety in the workplace, amendments to the Workers' Compensation Act, infrastructure investments such as those with the Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford, the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital, and communities across the province to improve rural cellular service were priorities that meant they "...will continue to stand up for [the] province locally, nationally, and internationally."
During the fall sitting, the government also announced they would be the first province in Canada with Clare's Law, legislation that would provide police services with a framework to disclose information about someone's violent past to intimate partners who may be at risk. As well, a commitment has been made to apologize to those affected by the Sixties Scoop.
According to the release, bilateral agreements for infrastructure projects with the federal government were also signed during the fall session. They include almost $900 million for infrastructure projects over the next decade and more than $5 million to improve access to treatment for people with opioid or crystal meth dependences.
The next sitting of the Legislative Assembly is set to begin March 4, 2019.
