SARM Takes Rural Issues to Ottawa

The Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) will be voicing rural Saskatchewan concerns in the country’s capital next week. A team of Board Members supported by SARM staff will descend upon Parliament Hill to meet with key decision makers and influencers to discuss issues facing our members.

Over the three day visit the group will be busy juggling multiple meetings with federal representatives in Agriculture, Finance, Infrastructure, Public Safety, Natural Resources, Indigenous Services, International Trade, and Transport to help align the federal agenda with the needs of rural Saskatchewan.

The SARM representatives will be looking to discuss issues such as the federally imposed carbon tax and its affect on producers in Saskatchewan, the need for reliable rural broadband access, rural crime, pipelines, and the Western Canadian Growth Strategy, to name a few. There is a meeting set with the Pest Management Regulatory Agency of Health Canada to discuss the potential ban of strychnine.

SARM is the leading voice representing the collective best interests of rural municipalities. The Association takes direction from its members on local issues to take to the federal level. SARM heads to Ottawa every year to highlight these concerns to the appropriate decision makers. SARM will be in Ottawa October 1-4, 2018.
