Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to introduce to you and through you today two school groups from my constituency. The first is a group of 44 students from Hague High School in grade 11 and 12 classes. They are seated in your gallery. They are accompanied today by their teachers, Russell Dyck and Margi Corbett, and chaperone Dave Unger.
And I had a chance to meet with them earlier today and they got to peek inside the Premier’s office, so that was pretty special. And one of the students, Alyssa Unger, her mom and I have been friends for over 30 years so it’s pretty special to have her here in the Assembly with us today.
Also seated in the east gallery are 40 students from Osler School, grade 8 and 9 students. They’re accompanied by their teachers, Grant Elke and Glen Osmond, and chaperoned by Lucy Friesen, Sheryl Banman, and Pam Spence. And I’ll have the opportunity to meet with them after question period today. And I would like all members to join me in welcoming these two groups to their Assembly.

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I'd like to join my colleague in welcoming the group from Rosthern. I grew up in Rosthern, and while I no longer live there and I don't have the pleasure of representing Rosthern, it is still very much my home, and it's nice to see familiar faces in the gallery today. So I would like to welcome the group from Rosthern to their Legislative Assembly.

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. And I would like to introduce to you and through you Deb Grey, who is seated in your gallery.
I had the absolute honour of working with Deb while I was in Ottawa. Deb was the first Reform MP [Member of Parliament] to sit in the House of Commons, and she sat as a caucus of one for a while. And throughout her career in politics and before that as a teacher, she showed her dedication not just to her constituents and her students, but to the country as a whole and is a role model not just to women in politics — although she certainly is that — but to all of us.
Deb, I’m sure, wouldn’t mind me calling her opinionated because I think we’re aware of that, but it is based on a set of principles and beliefs that she holds dear. And you don’t ever have to question where you stand with her, which is something that I certainly appreciate.
And in my role in Ottawa I helped out with question period a little bit and I have to say that Deb was an absolute superstar. And I value her friendship and I’m honoured to know her and I welcome her and I ask that all members of the Assembly welcome her to this Assembly today.
24 April 2008 - Dalmeny Mayor Allan Earle

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would also like to welcome Allan Earle to the Assembly today. Mr. Earle is the mayor of Dalmeny, one of the many growing towns in the constituency of Martensville that I represent.
I’ve had the opportunity recently to meet with Mr. Earle and the town council and go over some of their concerns as their community is experiencing a great amount of growth. And I want to thank him for his dedication, not only to the town of Dalmeny, but to the province of Saskatchewan, and welcome here today.

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to introduce to you and through you a group of senior citizens from Hague, Saskatchewan who is visiting us today. They were organized to come down here by Alma Neudorf and Ruth Fisher. And Justina and David Derksen are also seated on the floor of the Chamber. And I welcome them to our Chamber and I look forward to a good visit after question period today, and I ask that all members of the Chamber welcome them here today.
