Saskatchewan’s Finance Minister tabled the provincial budget in the Legislature today.
Donna Harpauer, who is also the MLA for Humboldt-Watrous, prefaced the report saying that for the past few weeks all she has been thinking about is the budget.
But then Friday’s tragic bus crash happened and she has been thinking about the heroic response of the emergency crews and medical personnel, and the leadership of the affected communities.
“I’ve been thinking about all those parents — the one’s whose boys were injured, the one’s who received the worst news they ever could,” stated Harpauer.
“I’ve been thinking about my community of Humboldt; how everyone has pulled together to help and support one another. Mr. Speaker Humboldt is strong.”
Harpauer adds she has been thinking about the 15 people on the bus that were killed and the overwhelming support the families have been receiving.
Harpauer says somehow Humboldt will go on.
