When it comes to shutting down coal in Saskatchewan, they need to just stand up and say, ‘No,’ says RM of Estevan Reeve Jason LeBlanc

Estevan mayor on coal: “The closer we get without any good answers by 2030, the harder it is for everyone in our community. We deserve some answers”

SaskPower narrows nuclear power siting for small modular reactors to Estevan or Elbow areas

Further carbon capture on coal “not an option,” according to CIC Minister Don Morgan
