For roughly 2.5 hours on Aug. 4, Premier Scott Moe, assisted by MLAs Daryl 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.

One question centred on refining our oil product and access to markets. Moe touched on value added processing and a recent micro refinery near Kerrobert. Unfortunately, the microphone did not pick up the follow up question.

Harrison spoke about how oil and gas has been affected by uncertainty from the federal government.

Moe noted how one Saskatchewan farmer recently told the federal agriculture minister, “The biggest risks to my current enterprise is government policies.”

Moe said, “That’s true in the energy industry, electricity industry, and, most certainly, is coming true in the agriculture industry as well. It needs to change.”

Here’s that portion of the town hall, unedited.
