The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) will host a meeting at the Oxbow Regional Library on Saturday, February 8 at 1 p.m.
The session will focus on emergency health care service delivery in southeast Saskatchewan. GPS leader Victor Lau says he needs to hear, first hand, from people in the southeast about the serious gaps in emergency health services in their region.
“All citizens of Saskatchewan should have the same access to emergency health services when they need them,” says Lau. “We also need to hear from people in the southeast about how to make emergency services as available in Estevan and Oxbow and Redvers, as (they are) in Regina.”
The GPS says an estimated 50,000 people live in southeast Saskatchewan. The economy of the region includes the oil and agriculture industries, both of which potentially need access to emergency health services on a regular basis.
Lau said that any information that is gained from the Oxbow meeting will be used to press the governing Saskatchewan Party to dramatically improve its emergency room services in the region.
