  • SKCA teams up with Business Council in Response to Government COVID Restrictions

    November 13, 2020
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE    
     
    Saskatchewan Construction Association (SKCA) throws support behind business council’s opposition to total lockdown
     
    Regina, SK – Today, the SKCA, in partnership with more than 30 other business groups in the Saskatchewan Business Council (SBC) and Chamber Network, signed off on an open letter to Saskatchewan residents, reiterating that a large scale lockdown would be disastrous to Saskatchewan, and urging residents to follow the guidelines provided:
     
    “[W]e are jointly writing to express our strong support for the targeted approach the Government of Saskatchewan has taken to address rising case counts in localized ‘hotspots,’ including new mandatory mask requirements.
     
    While we acknowledge some businesses will be significantly affected by today’s announcement, returning to a widespread, large-scale lockdown would be catastrophic to Saskatchewan jobs, Saskatchewan families, and on the immediate survivability of Saskatchewan businesses — even with new and extensive government intervention. The health, societal, and economic harm would have lasting, irreversible impacts.”

     
    Read the Letter.
     
    SKCA’s President and CEO Mark Cooper states:
     
    “I applaud Premier Scott Moe and the government for their ongoing and timely safety efforts here in Saskatchewan. It is my sincere hope that, by working together, we can continue to stay safe and stay open – the quality of life that Saskatchewan residents enjoy depends on it.”
