Former coal miner Murray Henderson asked Premier Scott Moe about coal and electric vehicles. Photo by Spencer ZinchukFor roughly 2.5 hours, Premier Scott Moe, assisted by MLAs Darryl Harrison (Cannington) and Steven Bonk (Moosomin) took questions from the floor at a town hall meeting in Arcola. The session continued until they basically ran out of questions.

Asked by Dave Sanders about how much the federal government is contributing to upgrading Saskatchewan’s power generation, Premier Moe explained the position federal policies have put us in. He touched on coal and natural gas, going back to the Harper administration, and the current Trudeau administration. Murray Henderson, a former coal miner, asked about coal as well as electric vehicles.
