Where is the research on private liquor stores?

Regina, Saskatchewan, Nov 8 — The Green Party of Saskatchewan thinks the Wall Government might be hasty in looking at privatizing liquor stores. “Where is the government’s research on privatized liquor stores?” asks Victor Lau, Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan. “What is the basis for expanding private liquor stores in the province?” Lau says the government should publicly release all of its research into the privatizing of liquor stores and the impact on taxpayers. “Unless they can prove that citizens will be better off with private liquor stores through credible research, our party will continue to question the need for these changes” says Lau.

Saskatchewan Greens stand behind Dr. Caldicott on Uranium Mining

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, 30 Oct — The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) stands behind anti-nuclear activist Dr. Helen Caldicott’s call to action on Uranium Mining. Caldicott says there should be no more Uranium mines opened in Saskatchewan until all previous radioactive mine tailings in the province are cleaned up and contained. Caldicott is referring to an Oraclepoll survey of 800 Saskatchewan respondents, where two-thirds of those surveyed do not want more Uranium mines opened in the province until the tailings are dealt with. Caldicott is scheduled to speak in Saskatoon on this subject on 31 October and 1 November. GPS Leader Victor Lau supports Caldicott’s call to action on Uranium mines, “Everybody in Saskatchewan is being harmed by the mine tailings that Dr. Caldicott speaks of. It makes no sense for this radioactive mess to be ignored any longer.”

Saskatchewan Heritage Fund not a Pipedream, says Lau

Regina, Saskatchewan, for immediate release: – The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) likes the Wall Government’s decision to propose a Heritage Fund for the province. “This is long overdue for Saskatchewan” says Victor Lau, Leader of the GPS. “It is wasteful to take the revenue of non-renewable resources and use it for day-to-day government operations,” says Lau. “Windfalls from Potash and Oil should be put in the Heritage Fund after our accumulated debt is eliminated.”
