Farm Credit Canada leaving Saskatchewan

In a concerning development that has caught the Moe government off guard, multiple high-level sources have told Sask United that Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is leaving Saskatchewan and relocating its operations to Quebec.

The Crown corporation is a key lender for the agriculture and agri-food businesses across the country. FCC loans out over $12 billion each year.

“It is highly concerning that the Moe government was completely unaware that the Trudeau government had made this decision to move the FCC out of the province. It is time for the Moe government to show some leadership, address this situation, and protect the interests of Saskatchewan,” said Nadine Wilson, Sask United Leader.

Red dress day raises awareness of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada

Red Dress Day is observed on May 5 each year to raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit+ people in Canada. This annual remembrance traces its roots back to the REDress Project initiated by Métis artist Jamie Black in 2010. Since then, it has evolved into a nationwide movement.

"Red Dress Day is an opportunity for us to honour those who are dearly missed by remembering their names, talking about their lives, and holding space for the people who love them," Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Office Laura Ross said. "This is also a day to raise awareness of gender-based violence. Prevention is key in ending inter-personal violence in our province, and our hope is to keep these discussions going."
