Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. In your gallery, I would like to introduce to my colleagues in the House, Steve Berg. He is the national director of the Christian Embassy of Canada. The embassy is an inter-denominational, non-profit organization serving diplomats, senators, members of parliament, and business executives.

Steve has been in Saskatchewan a few times, and I understand that he’s met with Richard Lepp and his wife for the House of Prayer to see about coordinating services that will benefit all of us who are involved in politics in this province. And, Mr. Speaker, I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the House of Prayer and the Christian Embassy of Canada for their dedication and prayers for all of us here today. And I ask all my colleagues to welcome Steve Berg to our Assembly.


13 November 2012 - Vicky & Lesa Giesbrecht

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To you and through you to all members of the Assembly, I would like to introduce Lesa Giesbrecht. Lesa is a 13-year-old student who attends Venture Heights in Martensville. She’s here today with her mom, Vicky. She’s missing school today but for an educational experience. She took a tour of the Legislative Building this morning, and I got to meet with her and show her the Premier’s office and the cabinet office, which is not usually on the tour.

And so I would ask all of my colleagues to welcome them here to their Assembly.

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, sitting in your gallery today are 24 public service employees. They are partaking in the parliamentary program for the public service. Participants are employees from the following ministries. They are representing Agriculture; Economy; Energy and Resources; Environment; Government Relations; Health; Social Services; Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport. And also we have employees from the Legislative Assembly Service, Office of the Provincial Auditor, and the Provincial Capital Commission.

Mr. Speaker, this is an in-depth program for employees in the public service to understand a little bit more about what we do during the day. And I am looking forward to meeting with them after question period today, as are you, I understand, as well. So I ask all members to welcome them here to their Assembly.


27 March 2013 - Saskatchewan Public Service Employees

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Today in your gallery are 14 public services employees who are here participating in a parliamentary program for the public service. Participants come from a variety of ministries: Advanced Ed, Agriculture, Central Services, Economy, Environment, Government Relations, Health, Highways, Justice, Public Service Commission, and Social Services. I think that covers probably all of us.

They are taking part in various things today, including a tour of the building and watching the proceedings today. And I’m going to have the opportunity directly after question period, I believe, to meet with them and explain what it’s like to spend a day in the life of a politician in this building — and some days are better than others, but today is a pretty good day — and answer some of their questions. So I ask all members to welcome them to their Legislative Assembly.


10 April 2013 - Saskatchewan Public Service Employees

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I’d like to introduce through you and to members of the Assembly and welcome them here today, there are 19 public service employees seated in the Speaker’s gallery. They are participating in the parliamentary program for the public service. The ministries that are represented today include Advanced Ed, Agriculture, Economy, Education, Health, Highways, Justice, Provincial Capital Commission, Public Service Commission, and Legislative Assembly Service, which I think covers off almost every ministry.

I’m not sure if they’ve already done it, but they’ll be doing a tour of the building and also getting briefings from various branches within the building: library, Legislative Assembly, committees branch, Executive Council — that sort of thing. And it’s my pleasure to be able to meet with them after question period today to give them a bit of insight about what it’s like to be a minister and what we do. And, Mr. Speaker, we know as ministers that we can’t do our job without the public service, so I want to publicly thank them for all the work that they do and ask all members to welcome them to their Assembly today.


23 April 2013 - Honourable Chuck Strahl

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To you and through you to all members of this Assembly, I would like to introduce my friend the Hon. Chuck Strahl who’s joining us here today. Chuck was a Member of Parliament for the constituency of Chilliwack from 1993 till 2011. He was successful in six consecutive election campaigns. He served as minister of Indian and Northern Affairs, minister of Transport, and minister of Agriculture. And he was in the city today for a prayer breakfast, and I had . . . When I was in Ottawa, it was a great learning opportunity, but the best part was the people that I got to meet and Chuck is definitely one of those. So I would ask all members of the Assembly to welcome Chuck here today.


24 April 2013 - Saskatchewan Public Service Employees

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would ask all my colleagues in the House to welcome 29 public service employees that are seated in your gallery. They are here today to participate in the parliamentary program for the public service. The ministries represented today are folks from Agriculture, Central Services, Economy, Finance, Health, Justice, Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, Provincial Capital Commission, Public Service Commission, Social Services, and the Legislative Assembly Service.

Mr. Speaker, it’s a day that they get to spend in the legislature taking in tours, speaking with various people who are involved in the process including, I believe, folks from your office and you as well and members of the opposition. And I look forward to meeting with them later today to discuss what it’s like to be a cabinet minister and an MLA [Member of the Legislative Assembly]. And I ask all my colleagues to welcome them to their legislature today.

Hon. Ms. Heppner: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would like to welcome a group of public servants that are seated in your gallery. I’d like to begin by thanking them on behalf of the government for all that they do. I know that if you speak to any minister here, and to the Premier, we can’t do our job without you doing yours. And you do it so very well, so thank you.

Mr. Speaker, the folks here are participating in the parliamentary program for the public service. There’s a number of ministries that are represented here today: Economy, Education, Environment, Finance, Health, Highways, Justice, Provincial Capital Commission, and Social Services. They’ll be spending time in the building doing a tour, I believe, meeting with you later today as well.

I wish them a very good day. I hope that it’s educational and you get to see a little bit about what we do. And again, thank you and welcome to your Legislative Assembly.
