Minister Orders Inspection Of Northern Village Of Pinehouse

Released on December 10, 2018

Today, Government Relations Minister Warren Kaeding responded to concerns raised about the Northern Village of Pinehouse by announcing an immediate inspection of that municipality.

“All citizens of this great province deserve municipal governments that are open, transparent, and meeting the needs of the community represented by their locally-elected councils,” Kaeding said.  “After great consideration, I am ordering an independent inspection of the Northern Village of Pinehouse.”

The inspection will focus on the Northern Village of Pinehouse’s practices related to Saskatchewan’s Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (LAFOIP); undertake an overview of the village’s general operations and business activities; and provide a high-level summary of the village’s financial situation and obligations.

Neil Robertson, a lawyer with more than 36 years of experience in municipal law and working with the public sector, will lead the inspection.

Following the inspection, a report will be compiled and delivered to the Minister of Government Relations, and the local council.

That report is expected to be delivered by Friday, March 15, 2019.
