The SKoop returns! Kevin is traveling this week so Sally and Dale are thrilled to be joined by former Saskatchewan Party cabinet minister Nancy Heppner! Hooray! What a delight it was to have her on the podcast. The three discuss the death of Queen Elizabeth II; the tragedy at James Smith; Pierre Pollievre's win as Conservative Party leader, his performance in Saskatchewan compared to Leslyn Lewis in 2020, and the relationship with the media. Finally they discuss the Saskatchewan Party government's recently-announced healthcare recruitment and retention plan, what it means for rural politics in the wake of the Kamsack "wake up call" this summer, and Nancy has something to say about the "52 hospitals closed" key message. Thanks for listening!
