They're At It Again

They're At It Again

The SKoop is back in 2023! Despite debate over new year wishes etiquette, Kevin, Sally and Dale dive right back into the Saskatchewan political landscape as this year begins. They discuss the juicy nuggets coming out of year-end interviews by both Scott Moe and Carla Beck, including the premier saying regionalism isn't productive for Canadian unity, and also saying it's too early to think about new candidates for the 2024 election. Then, the SKoop gang considers the issue of airline cancellations and what kind of political issue it may be for the Sask. Party government. And, Kevin and Sally give insider details on what MLAs and staff are up to at this point in the year, with Kevin wistfully thinking back to his days as finance minister. Finally, the SKoop wraps it up with thoughts on What Actually Mattered this Past Month. Thanks to all our listeners for coming back in 2023!
