New Saskatchewan Party Government Abolishes 'Office of Energy Conservation' To Celebrate Earth Day

Some Hon. Members:Hear, hear!
The Speaker: I recognize the member from Regina Walsh Acres.

Ms. Sandra Morin (NDP): Well, Mr. Speaker, the Sask Party seems to be
long on words and short on action. Mr. Speaker, the now Minister Responsible for Government Services once claimed that, quote “. . . if the agreements — the CO2 agreements, KYOTO come into place, that will be a severe impediment to Saskatchewan . . .”

I believe that the consequences of climate change, regional flooding, droughts, and the spread of pine beetles might be a more serious impediment to our province, Mr. Speaker. The Sask Party has now abolished the Office of Energy Conservation established specifically to help address climate change in Saskatchewan, Mr. Speaker.
My question is to the minister. Why should the people of Saskatchewan take anything that the Sask Party says about climate change seriously when they view measures to address it as impediments to Saskatchewan?
