Regina, SK –The Saskatchewan Trucking Association (STA) congratulates Scott Moe on his recent election as the leader of the Saskatchewan Party.
“The STA has always had a productive working relationship with the Saskatchewan Party. The pro-economic approach of the party and its willingness to work with industries to meet economic goals is very important to us as an advocacy organization. The STA looks forward to continuing that relationship with Moe as the party leader,” said STA Executive Director, Susan Ewart.
In pre-election meetings with Scott Moe and his team, the STA discussed the opportunities the trucking industry has to decrease its environmental impact via red tape reduction and allowance of new, innovative technologies. Mr. Moe was receptive to these ideas and confirmed his desire to work closely with industry to find solutions.
It is Scott Moe’s stance on a federally mandated carbon tax and focus on exports that stand out in the mind of the association as being key issues during meetings between the two groups. Increased exports are made possible by the trucking industry, something the STA feels Moe understands to the fullest extent. This includes the infrastructure requirements required to make Saskatchewan a more trucking friendly province, such as rest areas.
The Saskatchewan Trucking Association is the leader and voice for truck transport in the province of Saskatchewan. As proactive trusted advisors, the STA is a knowledgeable membership association that represents the collective interests of the truck transport industry through authentic advocacy and education. Representing the trucking industry since 1937, the STA has been the voice of truck transport for 80 years. Governed by a volunteer board of directors comprised of owners and operators of trucking companies and affiliate members from supplier companies and fully funded by the trucking industry and its affiliates, The STA is not funded, controlled or supervised by any government entity or crown corporation. Being fully funded by the industry which it represents ensures that the STA acts on behalf of the membership 100% of the time.
