Consulting with the government

I received an email today from the Director of Legislative Services,  Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice, inviting me and all party leaders to a meeting to consult on changes to the Elections Act, as the government of Saskatchewan has adopted an inaugural plank in the W.I.P. platform, fixed election dates, and recognizes the need to adapt to the changes a fixed election cause.

There is no longer an urgency to composing a valid voters list shortly after the writ is dropped for a general election. Instead the enumeration can be conducted without the time constraints of an imminent election, and ideally a more accurate voter list is the result.

This is my first public act as Leader, and the opportunity to influence legislation is why I became political in the first place.

Thanks for reading

Time for change


I'm Dana. I became the leader of the Western Independence Party of Saskatchewan on April 30th, 2011, after driving into a near blizzard in Yorkton to meet at our parties AGM.

I joined the party in 2006 and supported the parties noble cause by assuming responsibility for our online presence and as press liason. I joined the Board of Directors and served there until I took the job of Leader.

This blog was set up years ago but never used. I am going to blog here as much as I can, to share what I believe with anyone that cares to read my words.

If you are now reading this, I thank you for your time.

I encourage you to join me in putting our province first, to lift us into being the very best place on earth to live. We have it very good here in Saskatchewan and what would make it even better is to become the owners of our destiny, free from the past mistakes of empire and confident that we can be a vivid example of how very good life can be.
