VOLUME 1 ISSUE 7
ON THE HILL
Last weekend I traveled to Winnipeg for the Canadian School Boards Association Annual Convention to promote my Private Members' Bill, C-241 An Act to Amend the Excise Tax Act.  Bill C-241 seeks to have the GST rebate for schools increase to 100% from it`s current 62%. This means more money for Canadian schools and more money for Canadian students. In Saskatchewan alone this means a nearly $8.5 million increase in funds for schools and Saskatchewan students.

At the convention I gained support of my Bill from Janet Foord, outgoing president of the Canadian School Boards Association, Laurie French, the president of the Ontario Public School Board's Association and many, many others.

To support this very important Bill please visit the link below to sign the petition.  Thank you for supporting my Bill and supporting education across Canada.

I was also able to attend Pets in the Park, a Taste of Saskatchewan, meet with more students participating in the Summer Jobs program, and meet with many constituents both in my Saskatoon office and around the community.

I look forward to meeting many more constituents in the summer months, both in the community and in the office; please stop by and say hello!

HERITAGE IN THE COMMUNITY
COLLEGE BUILDING- UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN
The college building was constructed between 1910 and 1912 in Collegiate Gothic style on the University of Saskatchewan property. It is one of the oldest buildings on the property and was designed by Brown and Vallance, architects based in Montreal. The building first housed the College of Agriculture, and is now used as the Administration building. The College building has since been expanded with additions in 1985 and 2002. The building received designation as a historical site in 2001.
Correction from Volume 1 Issue 6: The caption of Kevin at the Saskatchewan and Region Home Builders Association recognized Errol Fisher as the Board Chair, however his title is: Saskatchewan Board Chair Canadian Home Builders’ Association. Our apologies.
