Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to introduce some folks who have joined us today. And joining us from various environmental organizations are — Darrell Crabbe from the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation, Lorne Scott from Nature Saskatchewan. I believe Brent Kennedy from Ducks Unlimited was supposed to be here. I’m not sure where he is. I would also like to welcome representatives from cattle and stock growers associations. My colleague, the Minister of Agriculture, will be introducing them shortly.
And, Mr. Speaker, while I’m on my feet, I would like to invite the leaders of both the environmental organizations and the stock growers and cattle associations to meet with me immediately following question period. I know there are some concerns over WHPA [The Wildlife Habitat Protection Act] legislation. I would like to meet with them, and we can discuss those concerns. So I put out that invitation today.

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to join the Leader of the Opposition in welcoming the folks from Warman. It is one of the fastest growing towns, not just in Saskatchewan, but in the country. And we understand they’re facing some challenges, and I’ve appreciated the working relationship that I have with their mayor and town council and working towards some solutions to those. And so I’d hope that everybody would welcome them to their Legislative Assembly today.
