REGINA - Today, the Leader of Saskatchewan’s Official Opposition Ryan Meili wrote Premier Scott Moe to call for the creation of a multi-sectoral task force to tackle the spread of COVID-19 and protect our communities, hospitals, schools and businesses.
“With cases rising, we know that everyone is feeling the stress and strain of the pandemic,” said Meili. “Now is the time to pull together and fight for our province against our common enemy: COVID-19.”
Melili said that the task force should develop a coordinated response to the pandemic, and be comprised of municipal and Indigenous leaders, health care professionals, educational professionals, representatives from business and labour, community-based organizations and the Official Opposition.
“The COVID-19 situation is moving quickly in Saskatchewan. Every day presents an opportunity to take additional action to slow the spread and provide the support families, communities and businesses need to make it through this challenging time,” said Meili. “I truly believe that by working together we can successfully flatten the curve in Saskatchewan, save lives and create the conditions for a successful recovery.”
