SARM Brown Jackets Head to Parliament Hill

For Immediate Release

SARM Brown Jackets Head to Parliament Hill

A group of Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) representatives will descend upon Parliament Hill in Ottawa this week with priorities that directly affect rural Saskatchewan residents. The team made up of board members supported by SARM staff will meet with federal ministers and policy makers to discuss important rural issues.

Top of mind for SARM is the canola trade issue with China. The team hopes to meet with Agriculture Minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau and Trade Minister, Jim Carr to discuss a proper solution and plan of action to resolve the issue.

The representatives will also be looking to discuss the unfairly imposed carbon tax and its affect on producers in Saskatchewan, the need for reliable rural broadband access, rural crime, oil pipelines and infrastructure funding for rural projects.

SARM is the independent association representing the collective best interests of rural municipalities. The Association advocates to ensure federal policy and programs align with the needs of rural Saskatchewan. SARM lends its rural voice to Parliament Hill annually to highlight member concerns. SARM will be in Ottawa April 1-4, 2019.
