In­creas­ing jobs is key

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - COLUMN -

This week, how­ever, the Saskatchewan NDP stood in the Leg­is­la­ture to vote against this plan — leg­is­la­tion de­signed to give small busi­ness own­ers greater in­cen­tive to hire more work­ers, and in­vest in new cap­i­tal right here in Moose Jaw and com­mu­ni­ties across Saskatchewan.

En­trepreneurs drive a large part of our prov­ince’s eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity and our gov­ern­ment rec­og­nizes and ap­pre­ci­ates the huge con­tri­bu­tion small busi­ness own­ers make to Saskatchewan. That’s why our gov­ern­ment is mov­ing to en­act these changes.

These mea­sures build upon our gov­ern­ment’s record of cre­at­ing one of the strong­est in­vest­ment cli­mates in Canada, achiev­ing the prov­ince’s first-ever AAA credit rat­ing, and among the strong­est job and wage growth in Canada over the last decade.

I want to take this op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge all Moose Jaw Times-Her­ald staff — past and present — who have con­nected our com­mu­nity and kept read­ers in­formed over all these years.

The Times-Her­ald has been the pa­per of record, shar­ing our sto­ries for more than a cen­tury, and it will be missed more than words can say.
