A good sized crowd from Arcola and area filled the town's Prairie Place arena Thursday evening to shake the Premier's hand, hear him speak and pose their questions to the leader of the SaskParty in person.

The 'Meet The Premier' event, hosted by the Constituency Association of Cannington and Cannington MLA Dan D'Autremont, gave an opportunity for a two way interaction on relevant issues, according to the long-serving representative.

"I think this is a great time in Saskatchewan. It's a great time for the Premier to be out here and visiting people across the province to find out what they think is happening here, Especially now that we're in session both in Regina and Ottawa, with the events coming down in Ottawa like the carbon tax, I think it's great the Premier's out here to hear what people have to say," expressed D'Autremont, and Scott Moe concurred.

"There's two reasons I would be in Arcola...the first is for the same reason we've been across the province, to get out and meet people, and to listen to people and to continue to take their guidance and take that back to the Government of Saskatchewan so that we can hopefully make more good decisions," said the Premier, adding that he was also there to support and honor the Cannington MLA, who announced that his current term will be his last.

"I'll be honest. My favorite part in any of these events is to meet the people across the province. I'm the most fortunate person in this nation, for sure, likely in the world because of the people I get to work with every day, representing the people that I get to meet with at events like this across Saskatchewan. We have the strongest caucus in the nation...and it's never lost on me during an evening like this. When I have the opportunity to be with what is our last serving founding member of the Saskatchewan Party, Dan D'Autremont, it's a true honor for me to be here, both because of the people I get to meet but also because of Dan's legacy."

After the meal, D'Autremont announced his retirement before introducing and handing the microphone to Moe, who proceeded to regale the crowd with tales and lore from Legislature involving the MLA , as well as reaffirming and expanding on his own commitments to various Saskatchewan industries such as oil and agriculture, improving the position on the global markets, and government investment, as well as the fight against the Carbon Tax.

A half hour was then spent in taking and answering questions from those in attendance, followed by the Constituency Association's Annual General Meeting.
