Premier Brad Wall reported on August 30, 2017 that the Saskatchewan Government is reconsidering legislation allowing up to 49% of a Crown Corporation to be sold. He reported that the Sask. Party politicians are hearing concerns from the people of Saskatchewan that any change in ownership constitutes privatization.
Our hard work is paying off. We must not stop now. We need to keep the pressure on until this legislation that was introduced last fall is defeated and our Crowns are protected.
Our Crowns were built by the people of Saskatchewan for the people of Saskatchewan.
SGI since inception has provided reliable affordable insurance to the people of Saskatchewan. In 2016 SGI achieved a profit of 84.5 million dollars. This generated 47.3 million dollars in dividends for the people of Saskatchewan.
We are working with the SFL Own It campaign, other unions, and the District Labour Councils to continue to educate our province on the importance of Crown Corporations and public services. For the month of September there will be Rallies, Town Halls and door knocking in various communities through out the province. Please check out our calendar of events for dates and locations.
