Bill 40 was passed by the Saskatchewan government in April of this year, the Bill would allow 49 per cent of the province’s Crown corporations to be sold without requiring a vote from the people of Saskatchewan.
Premier Brad Wall said the people of Saskatchewan have spoken, and Bill 40 will be repealed.
Saskatchewan, we have heard you loud and clear.
There will be no change to the ownership structure of the crowns.
Bill 40, which would have allowed for minority sales or partnerships with our crowns, will be repealed.
More details in tomorrow’s Speech from the Throne.
