Three former Saskatchewan Premiers will have landmarks and buildings named in their honour.
The Wall government announced a new dedication policy today (Wed).
Under the new policy, buildings or landmarks that don’t already bear the name of a person can be named after former leaders except for the immediate past Premier.
As an example, a structure cannot be named after Brad Wall once he retires in the new year.
The main Sask. Polytechnic building at the Moose Jaw Campus is now named the W. Ross Thatcher Building; Thatcher served as premier from 1964 to 1971.
The reservoir and dam near Alameda are named the Grant Devine Lake and the Grant Devine Dam; Devine was premier from 1982 to 1991.
The Saskatchewan Provincial Laboratory in Regina is named the Roy Romanow Provincial Laboratory; Romanow was in power from 1991 to 2001.
Earlier in the fall, the Regina Public Schools Adult Campus was renamed the Allan Blakeney Adult Campus after former premier Allan Blakeney who served from 1971 to 1982.
