SASKATCHEWAN AND MANITOBA TO HOLD JOINT CABINET MEETING IN YORKTON
The City of Yorkton will play host to the first-ever joint cabinet meeting between the governments of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Premiers Brad Wall and Greg Selinger, along with members of their respective cabinets, will meet on February 2.
"Working more closely with our neighbours and expanding regional co-operation in the west has been among my government's top intergovernmental priorities," Wall said. "I'm pleased that Premier Selinger and his team share our interest in discussing practical ways Saskatchewan and Manitoba can collaborate to benefit the people of our two great provinces."
"Manitoba will be assuming responsibility as Chair of the provincial Premiers' Council of the Federation from Saskatchewan later this year," Selinger added. "Our meeting in Yorkton will also give us a good opportunity to discuss ways to co-operate in addressing important national priorities."
Topics for discussion will include highways and transportation; energy and the environment; and Canada-US relations.
