MELVILLE - Today, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck joined concerned residents in Melville to demand the government take real action on the rural health care crisis by offering full-time positions to urgently needed nurses, lab techs and other health workers.
I am absolutely appalled by the news coming out of the Battlefords a couple of nights ago and heartbroken that a six-year-old bore witness to this unprovoked attack. Sadly, attacks such as this one occur all too often in Saskatchewan. I stand with the FSIN in urging a swift investigation and appropriate charges. I also implore the people of Saskatchewan to write their MLAs and demand immediate action on the disproportionate levels of violence facing Indigenous people. Racism has no place in our province.
