Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) Leader celebrates One Year Anniversary

Regina, Saskatchewan, for immediate release:  One year ago today, Victor Lau became Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan. “It’s hard to believe it was just a year ago since I became Party Leader,” says Lau. A lot of work has been done to grow the party since September 6, 2011. The highlights of the past year under Lau’s leadership include:

  • The GPS ran its first full slate of candidates in the 2011 provincial election. Almost half of those candidates were women. The election results resulted in the GPS becoming the new Third Party in Saskatchewan politics.
  • The GPS is now organized in 25/58 provincial constituencies across Saskatchewan. Efforts are now underway to organize the remaining constituencies. These organizing efforts have resulted in Lau visiting almost every part of the province since last September.
  • Hundreds of people from across Saskatchewan have joined the party in the past year.

Some ambitious plans for the GPS for the coming year include:

  • A major focus on fundraising.
  • A Policy Convention for this coming winter, to modernize the policies of the party.

“The past year has been extremely exciting,” says Lau. “The Green Party of Saskatchewan is growing in every corner of the province. We are building a strong team for the next provincial election and beyond.”

Sask Greens want Premier Wall to stand up for Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program

Regina, Saskatchewan, for immediate release: The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) hopes Premier Brad Wall will stand up for the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). GPS Leader Victor Lau says everyone in Saskatchewan is benefitting from the immigrants who are coming to our province, and the end of the SINP would cut short those benefits. “We encourage Premier Wall to do the right thing and continue with the SINP,” says Lau. Lau says the GPS fully supports the SINP and stands behind any efforts by the Premier to defend this program.

Injured Victims of Violent Crime in Saskatchewan Deserve Government Help


For immediate release

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) says it is time for the provincial government to help injured victims of violent crime. GPS Leader Victor Lau says injured victims of violent crime who were not injured in a motor vehicle accident are ignored by our provincial government. “There is no justice for most victims of violent crime in our province,” says Lau. “The very least that the Sask Party Government could do for these individuals is create a fund that will provide benefits to victims of violent crime.”

Without access to SGI payouts from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident, there is little or no help for victims of violent crime in Saskatchewan. Victims can apply for up to $25,000 in funding, but most people don’t know about it, and it is alleged that victims are never told about this funding. The GPS wants a fund that could provide these victims with benefits to cover all expenses related to their ongoing care and support.

For more information please contact Victor Lau at (306)737-5345.
