The Government of Saskatchewan has declared Seniors' Week in Saskatchewan from September 30 to October 6, 2013.
We are pleased to accept this recognition and feel it is an appropriate time to take up our cause, once again, to fight for the retention of the STC Service between Eastend-Swift Current and Eastend-Mossbank.
Earlier in the year, we were told the service would be discontinued as of May 18, 2013. Then, we were advised that this would be extended to December 31, 2013. By eliminating this service, we are told there would be an annual saving of $140,000. We feel this is a small saving in light of the benefit this service provides.
We are attempting to have a meeting with Honourable Don McMorris, Minister Responsible for STC, within the next few weeks. Meantime, we are asking for public support. Please send your letters of concern and support to:
