BRANDON, Man. — Transportation regulations will be among the topics discussed at joint Cabinet meetings involving Manitoba and Saskatchewan ministers this week.
This marks the second year of joint Cabinet meetings that will, among other things, aim to harmonize transportation regulations. During last year’s meetings, Cabinet ministers from the two provinces discussed streamlining transportation regulations and partnering for truck enforcement efforts.
“This meeting will be a chance to report on the progress that has been made on the opportunities outlined at our first joint cabinet meeting, last February in Yorkton,” said Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall. “At that time, we agreed to work toward streamlining transportation regulations and coordinating highways enforcement and trucking inspection. We also agreed to look at ways to expand trade in electricity by expanding transmission capacity between our provinces. There has been substantial progress on all these issues, and the Brandon meeting will be a chance to highlight how far we have come.”
The two Premiers say the will also be discussing flood prevention.
