Premier Wall says he would like to bring transportation services such as Uber and Lyft to the province.
“I’ve used Uber before and I’ve felt very safe, as safe as any other ride-sharing opportunity that’s there,” Wall noted. “But there’s also Lyft, which is another competitor, but I do think we just need more options for Saskatchewan people.”

The fall sitting of Legislature will be Premier Brad Wall`s last, as he announced this summer that he will be stepping down in January.
