To say it's been a busy few weeks would be an understatement. I've enjoyed the bbqs, community clean ups and dedication days that have been happening in the city and in Saskatoon University,

I am still on the doorstep collecting feedback from you. If I haven't made it to you yet, please take a moment and submit it here.

See you in the constituency,

Bringing Coding And Robotics Education To Northern Saskatchewan

Innovation Saskatchewan has developed a program that brings robotics into classrooms in northern Saskatchewan.  RoboX is a program that teaches students digital literacy through building robots and coding.

The program consists of two parts:
  1. Training teachers fun ways to teach robotics and coding to their students; and
  2. Hosting hands-on workshops that will give students an opportunity to build and program robots while learning about the role of technology in our lives.
The program’s goal is to increase awareness of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  Children exposed to those subjects at the elementary and high school levels are more likely to continue studying them after graduating.

Six new addictions beds open at Calder Centre

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is pleased to announce an expansion of service at Calder Centre with the staffing and opening of six new resident treatment beds at Calder Centre, a provincial addictions treatment facility based in Saskatoon.

“This government is improving access to a continuum of addictions services with new funding for treatment beds, counselling, harm reduction and pre- and post-addiction treatment supports,” said Health Minister Jim Reiter. “Addictions issues are complex and individual and these new, in-patient adult beds at Calder Centre build on our ability to provide a range of support services people need on their recovery journey.”

Meewasin Dedication Ceremony
It was my pleasure to bring greetings on behalf of Premier Scott Moe and the Government of Saskatchewan for the 33rd annual Meewasin Plant-A-Tree Dedication Ceremony.

What a great way to commemorate memorable milestones for loved ones – from births to celebrations of life and everything in between. Urban parks are a convenient, natural escape in the developed areas of our province.

The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to support and provide funding to the Meewasin Valley Authority as they enter into their 40th year as an urban park authority. I would like to thank the Meewasin Valley Authority for conserving the beautiful surroundings of the South Saskatchewan River Valley. 

And, thank you to the donors and sponsors for supporting and participating in the Meewasin Plant-A-Tree program and the brick and bench sponsorships.

Your support builds upon the legacy of conservation in Meewasin and enhances opportunities for the people of Saskatchewan to enjoy this area for many more years to come.
Special Volunteer Awards Banquet
It was my pleasure to bring greetings on behalf of Premier Scott Moe and the Government of Saskatchewan to the Special Volunteer Awards and to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Saskatchewan German Council.

Dance, languages, food and heritage – you are keeping the German culture alive. The Government of Saskatchewan recognizes this and is proud to support the Saskatchewan German Council, with funding from SaskCulture, through the recently renewed partnership with Saskatchewan Lotteries.

Thank you to the Saskatchewan German Council for sharing your culture and traditions and for putting together this great event. Congratulations on your 35th anniversary and for continuing to recognize the volunteers in this province who go the extra mile.
Saskatoon Shrine Club 100 Year Celebration

The Saskatoon Shrine Club has saved and improved lives by helping children and families in need, and bringing joy to countless others.

This dedication is something we see from service clubs and fraternal organizations here in Saskatoon and all across Saskatchewan. From the red fez to the motorbikes… there is likely none more recognizable than the Shriners. But more than their appearance, it’s a century of serving Saskatoon through fun, family and philanthropy that stands out the most.

It’s a proud tradition that’s nearly as old as our province where, since 19-19, the Saskatoon Shrine Club has contributed mightily. On behalf of a grateful government, I want to offer congratulations on 100 years.
Filipino Independence Day
Happy Filipino Independence Day to the over 30,000 Filipinos we have welcomed to our province since forming Government in 2007. I was joined by MLA David Buckingham, MLA for Saskatoon Westview and Minister Don Morgan at the flag-raising on Saturday.
Cardboard Boat Race Challenge
It's always a laugh-a-minute at the Saskatoon Industry Education Council Cardboard Boat Challenge with MLA David Buckingham and grade 8's from around the city as they vie to build the fastest and most durable boat. Congratulations to all the novice engineers- you have bright futures!
