Procedure and House Affairs committee  I would say, first of all, that we did not experience long lineups. That was by intention and design in the system, beginning August 15 with voting by mail, and that was quite a success, I believe, in Saskatchewan. Your other question was...?

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Well, unlike what is being requested federally for Saturday and Sunday, we requested advance voting over a five-day period, with a significant number of hours available. Then on election day we allowed for a regular time, but we had the schools closed so that students weren't in

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Our writ period is from 27 to 35 days. The writ period was the shortest possible for our election.

Procedure and House Affairs committee  I mentioned the ability to adapt being in our legislation, but not the ability to change. I think that was one of our real challenges, unlike in B.C., where they did allow for telephone voting. I could not introduce telephone voting or any other kind, so there has to be a recogni

Procedure and House Affairs committee  It's not a problem. As I mentioned, “Voting safely is our priority” was part of our advertising campaign from the very beginning. We had the advantage of having an election date set in legislation, unlike in B.C. We began that campaign on August, 15 and it was integrated into ev

Procedure and House Affairs committee  Saskatchewan is perhaps a microcosm of Canada in that it is very diverse as well. Overall, we did have one single message that was going out to voters across the province. As time moved on, we had to adapt. For example, with the Peter Ballantyne first nation, we had to direct o
