After such a heartbreaking loss, we want our leaders to take responsibility, and to take action. Today, I’m calling on Scott Moe and Jim Reiter to reach out to the Uko family, to make it clear that they will take action to prevent this happening to anyone else.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority’s overdue apology comes at the same time as Tristen Durocher is walking from La Ronge to Regina protesting the government’s lack of action on the suicide crisis, an ongoing overdose crisis is claiming more lives every week, and the average wait time for emergency mental health support is thirteen hours in Regina and Saskatoon.

Less than a month ago, the Premier, the Health Minister and the entire Saskatchewan Party government voted against the NDP’s bill for a provincial suicide strategy. It was a mistake that shows this government, time and again, is more focused on politics than on people.

We hope the coroner's investigation will bring some closure for Uko’s family. But we need action - not just apologies - to ensure no one else takes their own life due to the failings of this government.
