Point of Privilege Resolution No. 7-05A

WHEREAS, SARM has been lobbying senior governments for many years to correct the inequities of excessive education taxes on agricultural properties; and

WHEREAS, the lobbying efforts have apparently fallen on deaf ears, as little if any of the inequities have been addressed to date; and

WHEREAS, the majority of the farmers are facing an unprecedented financial crisis that will result in many farmers being forced out of business;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that SARM begin an immediate advertising campaign outlining to the people of Saskatchewan the unfairness of the education tax burden being borne by the agricultural sector of the province.
