The City of Martensville has officially endorsed in principle the draft Partnership for Growth (P4G) regional plan.
Martensville city council adopted a resolution to that effect at its regular meeting on Tuesday, September 5.
Martensville is one of five municipalities within the P4G partnership. The others are Warman, Osler, Corman Park and Saskatoon. Similar motions of endorsement of the P4G plan are expected to come before these councils in the coming weeks.
“It’s been a long process,” said Martensville Mayor Kent Muench in an interview following the council vote. “There have been a number of open houses, people have seen the land use map and the regional plan, and there’s been a lot of discussion on this.
“It’s never an easy thing to have five diverse municipalities all working together to achieve mutually-beneficial goals, and I think we’ve achieved something very substantial here.” Continue reading “Martensville endorses P4G draft regional plan”→
Backed by his wife Krista, as well as 17 elected members of his party’s caucus in the provincial legislature, Scott Moe announced his bid for the leadership of the Saskatchewan Party at a news conference at Q-Line Trucking in the Corman Industrial Park on Friday, September 1.
The MLA for Rosthern-Shellbrook, said he wants to build on the vision of retiring Premier Brad Wall and strengthen the province’s economy.
Moe said he values the support of his colleagues in the legislative caucus. “I can honestly state that I would not be at this podium today without my colleagues standing beside me,” said Moe. He noted that replacing the current premier is a “daunting” task for any individual.
“What I offer you today, what we offer you, is a team of people, rather than an individual. Each of us is taking a step forward to ensure the founding principles of this party continue to shape our policy and our decisions for the future of this province,” he said. “And it is this team that will put us in the best position to win the next provincial election in 2020.”
Moe was introduced at the announcement by Rosetown-Elrose MLA Jim Reiter.
“I am proud to call Scott a colleague and friend,” said Reiter. “He has become a leader in our caucus and Cabinet and I know he is the best person to lead our team and the Saskatchewan Party forward.”
