Just in time for the weekend, The SKoop is back...and sadly Kevin is not here with us. Thankfully we are joined by special guest Nancy Heppner! Nancy is a former Sask Party MLA and cabinet minister, and current Senior Advisor for StrategyCorp. This is also a special episode because we get EXCLUSIVE POLLING RESULTS from our friend Lang McGilp, Research Director at Insightrix - a Saskatoon-based market research company. Insightrix shares polling results on:

  • Approval of the provincial government over the past month;
  • How Saskatchewan residents feel about the province's healthcare system and the management by the provincial government; and
  • With all the talk of regionalism, how many people in Saskatchewan identify first as either a Canadian, Saskatchewanian, or a Western Canadian. 

Read the full SKoop/Insightrix polling results here.

Finally, with not much time to spare, Sally, Nancy and Dale give their thoughts on What Actually Mattered This Week.
