Upgrade to Power Lines for Northern Saskatchewan
Whereas a consistent and dependable electrical power service is critical to northern communities and their residents both safety and public health; and
Whereas in emergency situations in Northern Saskatchewan are complicated because of very limited power grid to lines to the northern communities; and
Whereas wooden power poles are at risk of burning during forest fires;
Therefore be it resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association advocate with the Government of Saskatchewan and SaskPower to upgrade power poles to steel in northern Saskatchewan, beginning with Tracey Road to Air Ronge, La Ronge, and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band.
