    Green Party of SaskatchewanFor immediate release Wall Government has explaining to do over slap to Pharmacies in Rural Saskatchewan Regina, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Green Party has learned that the Sunrise Health Region has allegedly aggregated the distribution of prescription drugs through one pharmacy in Yorkton. It is alleged that just one pharmacy in the Health Region will distribute prescriptions to hospitals and care homes within the Health Region from now on. Saskatchewan Green Leader Victor Lau says if this allegation is true, then a number of questions need to be posed: • Was the decision allegedly made to drop small town pharmacies in the Sunrise Health Region from distributing prescriptions to the hospitals and care homes in favour of just one pharmacy? • Was the alleged choice of the one pharmacy in Yorkton opened up for public tendering? • How was the alleged decision made to go with one particular pharmacy? • If this centralization decision was allegedly made, what is the justification for cutting off the small town pharmacies without giving these businesses a chance to replace their lost income? • How much did it allegedly cost the Sunrise Health Region to carry out the centralization? • Was any research done by Sunrise or the Ministry of Health to justify this alleged centralization? • Has the Sunrise Health Region or the Ministry of Health launched a process for monitoring the short and long term effects of this alleged centralization? “The alleged centralization of distributing prescription drugs within the Sunrise Health Region institutions, if true, is devastating to the economies of the towns and villages with the affected pharmacies,” says Lau. “If the alleged decision was made to centralize these prescription drug distributions, then it’s a case of the Wall Government picking winners and losers in East Central Saskatchewan,” says David Sawkiw, the Saskatchewan Green candidate in the Kelvington-Wadena constituency. Lau says Premier Brad Wall and Health Minister Dustin Duncan need to provide answers to these questions about the alleged centralization scheme; this government needs to be accountable to taxpayers or stand aside when the next election comes in 2016. -30- For more information, please contact Victor Lau at (306)737-5345 or David Sawkiw at (306)547-4762.

    Option Nationale« Je le dis aux militants indépendantistes de la relève, qui investissent temps, espoirs et énergies dans la poursuite de notre objectif commun, que ce soit à Option nationale, au PQ, à QS ou au Bloc: ne vous laissez pas pur-et-duriser. On veut vous enfermer dans le compartiment étanche et neutralisant de l'extrémisme. On a fait le coup aux générations précédentes, ne vous faites pas prendre vous aussi. N'acceptez pas qu'on vous marque au sceau d'étiquettes destinées à vous discréditer. On peut être à la fois déterminé, ouvert, démocrate et responsable. Être indépendantiste et adopter une démarche politique en conséquence n'est ni extrémiste, ni excessif, ni déraisonnable. Dites-le haut et fort et dépassons ensemble les vieux complexes qui taraudent notre mouvement. » - Nic Payne, président du conseil national d'Option nationale

    Green Party of SaskatchewanFor immediate release Two more candidates for Saskatchewan’s Northern Rural region Regina, Saskatchewan – The Saskatchewan Greens nominated two candidates today in the province’s Northern Rural region. Sondra Whitesell, a town councillor from Watson, will represent the Saskatchewan Greens in the Melfort constituency, while retired teacher and peace activist Larry Zepp will carry the party’s banner in the adjacent Saskatchewan Rivers constituency.

    Nova Scotia NDPNDP MLA Dave Wilson says the Liberals’ complete lack of action on economic development and job creation is troubling in light of new numbers released by Statistics Canada today. In the month of July, Nova Scotia lost over 5,000 full-time jobs and the unemployment rate increased from 8.7% to 9.4%. Wilson wants to know why months after the Ivany Commission advised that a “now or never” attitude was needed to grow Nova Scotia’s economy, the Premier is still taking a wait and see approach. http://nsndp.ca/ns/job-numbers-2

    Nova Scotia NDPFrom Dartmouth NDP MP Robert Chisholm: This is a good example of why it’s so important to keep fighting for what’s right. Despite the government’s signals that they intended on letting passenger rail service in our region collapse, thousands of citizens, interest groups like Transport Action, and the NDP, kept up the pressure and eventually the Conservatives relented. It’s just not good enough for elected representatives to shrug their shoulders and say “why bother?” as if whatever bad decision has been announced is inevitable so it’s not worth speaking up about. It happened with the Unfair Elections Act earlier this year when the government tried to (wrongly) convince people there was nothing that would change their mind, and it’s happening again, right now, with Canada Post. Don’t believe someone when they say there’s nothing we can do. They are wrong.
