November 15, 2019


Its been a great few weeks back in Regina. We've had school visits, MLA receptions with important community program leaders,  we made amendments to important vaping laws and I had the opportunity to congratulate University of Saskatchewan graduates at convocation. And of course, many many events in and around Saskatoon University. 

Today, Premier Scott Moe released Saskatchewan's Growth Plan. I'm proud of the work we've done and the work we will continue to do to ensure Saskatchewan is still the best place to work, live and raise a family. Take a look at our plan and let me know your thoughts.

See you in the constituency,
