More due diligence needed over land

The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) says there needs to be more due diligence before Privatized Crown grasslands are ploughed. Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart needs to keep three points in mind before he allows any more of the grasslands to be changed:

1) We wish the government would stop any further land sales for now.
2) There needs to be an inventory completed of the land species that live on those grasslands.
3) Begin a public review of what the citizens of Saskatchewan want done with the remaining crown grasslands.
This natural habitat is not only part of our environmental stewardship, but is also part of our province’s heritage. Therefore, everyone in the province should have a say in what happens with these lands.
If doing due diligence in regards to Crown grasslands is too overwhelming for the current Minister of Agriculture, then perhaps Premier Brad Wall should consider taking over this important portfolio himself, to ensure timely action happens in regard to this matter.
Victor Lau, Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan, Regina
