Below you'll find MLA Tim McLeod's Report from the Legislature for May 23, 2024. 

The views expressed below are solely the opinions of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official stance of Golden West.



Saskatchewan continues to be a growing province with its brightest days ahead. Saskatoon and Regina are two of the fastest growing and youngest cities in Canada, according to a recent report from Statistics Canada. Of 41 total cities, Saskatoon was the fourth-fastest growing city with an annual population growth rate of 4.8 per cent while Regina was eighth with 4.1 per cent growth. Saskatoon is also the youngest city in Canada with a median age of 36.8 years and Regina is fifth youngest with a median age of 37.8.

Gone are the days when Saskatchewan’s population was dropping because so many of its young people were leaving. Today, Saskatchewan has so many opportunities for our young people to build great careers. Together with the great people of this province, our government is committed to keeping our economy strong.

More exports abroad mean more jobs here at home. In 2023, Saskatchewan exported $7.28 billion worth of agri-food products to the Indo-Pacific region. The billions of dollars in high quality exports to the Indo-Pacific region are the result of the strong and sustainable agriculture sector here in Saskatchewan. Our government will remain steadfast in our trade partnerships, which support Saskatchewan’s economic goals while continuing to feed a growing world.

Inflation continues to drop in Saskatchewan as well, due in part to our government’s decision to remove the Trudeau-Singh carbon tax off home heating. Saskatchewan’s inflation rate in April fell to 1 per cent, well below the national average of 2.7 per cent. Just think how much inflation would drop if the federal Liberal-NDP coalition government removed that same carbon tax off everything for everyone.

Our government is committed to keeping Saskatchewan’s population growing and economy strong. A strong and growing economy means a brighter future with more opportunities, and more investments in our classrooms, care and communities.
