Sask Crowns Regina Sign-up form



What is the SaskCrowns campaign? In response to the Sask Party's Bill 40, which lets the government sell off up to 49% of any crown corporation without a referendum, a group of concerned citizens has come together to campaign to make sure Saskatchewan people get to have a say before any percentage of our Crown Corps are sold off or wound down.

To do this, we have set up a petition under the Referendum and Plebiscite Act, to force the government to hold a vote on our Crowns. To force the vote, we must collect 125,000 signatures across Saskatchewan -- and all must be on paper.

If you've signed an online petition, or a "Save SaskTel" petition, it won't count for our campaign's goal -- forcing the Sask Party government to hold a vote on the crowns.

We have had lots of support in Regina (including in Sask Party-held constituencies!), but we need to reach as many people as possible before our Crowns are sold off.

Our Crowns -- SaskTel, SGI, SaskPower, and the rest -- are important public services that deliver millions of dollars in dividends to the General Revenue Fund every year, and create good jobs right here in Saskatchewan. They also help keep our rates lower compared to other provinces. In a changing world, they give us a lever of control over key industries.

Let's make sure they keep delivering for Saskatchewan people by staying 100% public. Download & Print the Petition Here


Thank you in advance for your help with the campaign.
