The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) is calling on the federal and provincial governments to take immediate action to start moving the record harvest that is sitting in Saskatchewan elevators and granaries.
The federal and provincial governments are giving rural people in Saskatchewan the back of their hands by ignoring the growing crisis. We don’t understand why Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Brad Wall haven’t taken action yet to get Saskatchewan grain loaded onto rail cars and moved to port.
The lack of action in moving our grain to port is a huge hindrance for our farmers because they are being deprived of income. Premier Wall needs to press the federal government to use its powers to force CN and CP to deliver railcars to Saskatchewan elevators this week.
The lack of action by our governments in this matter is shameful. Farmers need action right now.
Leader of the Green Party of Saskatchewan
