PREMIER OUTLINES PRIORITIES FOR NEXT 18 MONTHS
Government Working to Ensure Strong Economy, High Quality of Life for Everyone
Premier Brad Wall today released mandate letters recently sent to all of his cabinet ministers outlining the government's priorities for the next 18 months.
"Continuing to build a strong and growing economy is job number one for our government," Wall said. "But a strong economy is not an end in itself. A prosperous province provides a high quality of life and important government services like health and education for all Saskatchewan people."
Wall said his government has fulfilled almost all of the promises it made in the 2007 election campaign.
"We have a few more to complete, like further reductions to education property tax and fulfilling our commitment to Saskatchewan communities on revenue sharing," Wall said. "Beyond that, it's time for our government to set some new priorities and keep Saskatchewan moving forward, and that's what we are doing now."
Priorities outlined in the government mandate letters include:
"There's a new confidence in our province," Wall said. "I hear it from people in every part of our province who think Saskatchewan is the best place in Canada to work and to live. Our government's job is to keep our great province heading in the right direction."
