Newly elected MPs in Saskatchewan will be knocking on doors to help save SaskTel. Last year, the province passed a bill that would allow 49 percent of the regional carrier to be sold.
Regina-Lewvan NDP MP Erin Weir is concerned that if 49 percent of the corporation was sold it would be a step towards full privatization. Weir wants SaskTel to remain the company that it was envisioned to be, which was a regional carrier that could provide affordable pricing to residents.
Weir, along with a few other MPs, will be collecting signatures for a petition that aims to save SaskTel. The MPs hope that this campaign will attract some attention from the federal government.
