The top three issues I am hearing in Moose Jaw on the doorstep are, first and foremost, health care and the proposed new hospital. And I guess with health care it is concerns about the hospital being smaller, concerns about lack of service in some areas and the shortage of doctors.

The second issue would be affordability. The general cost of living, high cost of housing, high cost of rental housing and I think people are generally feeling quite squeezed. (And third,) I’m starting to hear a lot about a the loss of government services.

First and foremost, I would have to say the top issues thus far would be the Moose Jaw Union Hospital and health care, then affordable housing and bringing more business to the city.

The people have said they would like to see more economic development in Moose Jaw.

The biggest topic in the campaign so far in Moose Jaw Wakamow involves our commitment to build a brand new hospital.  The response has been overwhelmingly positive, with voters agreeing that now is the time to move forward on this important investment in the community.  In addition, support for low-income seniors has been a major theme.  We had a great turnout last week when the Premier was in Moose Jaw announcing the Seniors Personal Care Home Benefit and improvement to the Seniors Income Plan, with the announcements being very well received.  Improving wait times remains important to people in our city, and we continue to make great strides in this area.
