Public Pastures, Public Interest

Everyone is invited to a public forum on the privatization of community pasture lands in Saskatchewan.

Over one million acres  are up for grabs! Have you been consulted?

This forum brings together key stakeholders and the public to discuss the future of community pastures in Saskatchewan.

The morning information session topics include the history and context of the pastures, ecological values and species at risk in the pastures, and First Nations interests in the land. An open mic session will follow.

The noon panel discussion features key stakeholders – pasture employees and patrons, First Nations, and environmental and recreational interests. It will be moderated by Trevor Herriot. Panelists are:

  • Roland Crowe (Piapot First Nation)
  • Mert Taylor (pasture manager)
  • Joanne Brochu (rancher and pasture patron)
  • Lorne Scott (Environmental NGOs representative)

The afternoon session will be moderated by Dennis Arbuthnott. It will begin with an explanation of the First Nations Joint Venture Proposal. A facilitated discussion on the role of the pastures within public policy, working towards resolutions, will follow.
The day’s proceedings are open to all!

Friday, November 23, 8:30-4:30 pm
The Orr Centre, 4400 4th Avenue

Sponsored by Campion College, RPIRG, the University of Regina Departments of Geography and Sociology, APAS, and SM Solutions.
