Inter-Provincial Visit to Saskatchewan
Gwenn Ronyk

At the time this article was written Gwenn Ronyk was First Assistant Clerk of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan.

During the week of September 4-8, 1979, the Saskatchewan Branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association had the pleasure of hosting a visit from parliamentarians from British Columbia and Quebec. The British Columbia delegation composed of five Members, their spouses and the Clerk was lead by the Hon. H. Schroeder, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The Quebec delegation headed by Mme. Cuerrier, Vice-President of the National Assembly, was composed of four Members, their spouses and a parliamentary officer.

While in Saskatchewan, the delegates had the opportunity to experience several facets of Saskatchewan life through visits to an agricultural community, the RCMP Academy, a potash mine, a steel plant, the Western Development Museum and Batoche Historic site, the University of Saskatchewan and one of the Province's francophone communities – St. Isadore de Bellevue.

Not only did the delegates have the opportunity to get to know Saskatchewan members and each other, but also they met a cross-section of Saskatchewan citizens. Through this inter-provincial visit, participants at all levels were able to gain a better understanding of the ways and concerns of people from beyond their own province and had a great deal of fun in doing so.
