January was a busy month! We survived -50 and now we're moving into warmer weather. Thank goodness. Can you blame us for putting door-knocking on hold? We're back on the doors again, so I hope to see many of you in the days and weeks ahead.
This month I hosted my first Coffee and Conversations with your MLA. Some of you came out with your concerns and others joined to hear about the positive strides our government has made in the last four years. I hope to see more of you at the next one. Watch for it!
See you in the constituency,

Government Of Saskatchewan Proclaims Day Of Action Against Hate And Intolerance
It was my pleasure to deliver a Certificate of Proclamation of Action Against Hate and Intolerance to Cathedral of the Holy Family.
January 29, 2020 has been proclaimed Day of Action Against Hate and Intolerance in Saskatchewan.
This proclamation recognizes that there’s no place for racism in Saskatchewan.
The date marks the tremendous loss that took place on January 29, 2017 when six Canadian Muslim men lost their lives and many were gravely injured in a shooting at a mosque in Quebec City.
“Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our country,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. “We must all stand together against all forms of hatred and intolerance, and work together to promote inclusion and acceptance.”
I was honoured to attend the Islamic Association of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Quebec Remembrance.
I also had the privilege of delivering a Certificate of Proclamation to my friends from the Ahmadiyya community.
Winter Fun Continues In Saskatchewan Provincial Parks!
Sask Parks is offering more winter activities this year than ever before. With ten special events taking place throughout February and March, there is still plenty of opportunity to get out to a park for some winter fun the whole family will enjoy.
“So far this winter, we’ve had hundreds of Saskatchewan residents take part in our winter activities,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “With a variety of events planned around skating, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and more, there is still plenty of opportunity to get out and discover what winter in the parks is all about.”
The centre has bookable space for wellness-related activities, such as yoga and healthy eating classes, is the home base for Peer Health, a student health education group, and is frequented by university faith leaders, who offer spiritual guidance and support.
“It is well known that a sense of belonging, acceptance and connection are foundational to health and well-being,” said Peter Hedley, director of Student Supports and Services. “Spaces like this one, that offer an opportunity for students to find a sense of belonging and build community, are vital.”
Saskatchewan’s Vapour Product Legislation Now In Force
