Statement from Official Opposition Leader Ryan Meili on Cigar Lake Mine Suspension

"Unfortunately, this is just the latest example of the Sask. Party’s failure to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. The provincial government has not taken the necessary measures to get COVID-19 under control resulting in serious disruptions for the province’s workforce and the suspension of activities at the Cigar Lake Mine. COVID-19 is taking a terrible toll on people in our schools, hospitals, and long-term care homes; but today’s announcement shows that it is also seriously impacting people’s jobs and our provincial economy. We hope that the mine will be able to safely resume regular operations with its full workforce as soon as possible."
