Conway warns Makowsky of looming Sunrise Scandal deadline

 REGINA - Today, the Official Opposition Ethics and Democracy Critic Meara Conway released a letter she penned to Sask. Party Minister Gene Makowsky.

On November 15, 2023, Makowsky promised answers about his ministry’s dealings with Sask. Party MLA Gary Grewal’s Sunrise Motel.

On January 25, 2024, Makowsky denied withholding the information and promised to release it to the Opposition in “a matter of days” or by February 10, 2024, at the latest.

Makowsky’s office has already pushed back the deadline for the release of this information once. 

Conway’s letter:

February 8, 2024

Honourable Gene Makowsky

Minister of Social Services

303 Legislative Building


Dear Minister Makowsky:

I write again about the Sunrise Motel scandal.

As you know, I've asked a number of questions in Question Period, supplementary estimates, via letter, and in two Freedom of Information requests. Nothing has been forthcoming to date except your statement that $172,000 was paid out to the Sunrise Motel in 2022.

On January 25, 2024, in the wake of our calls for transparency on the Sunrise Motel scandal, you indicated the information requested would be provided "in the coming days ... " and no later than February 10, 2024.

I look forward to receiving all information requested by the weekend and trust you will provide clarification if for some reason any portion of our request will not be fulfilled by that date.


Meara Conway, MLA
