Premier Calvert announces provincial bio-fuel innitiative worth $80,000,000

FTLComm - Tisdale - Wednesday, June 13, 2007

It was a year ago the Premier was in town and dropped off a cheque to help with the downtown Legacy project. Once again he came to Tisdale bearing a gift.

The Sask-Bio project is $80,000,000 over the next four years to promote and assist similar projects to the new Tisdale ENSASK Biofuel project that prompted yesterday's day long forum on ethanol development. Under the plan the local communities have to put up investment capital but the province will back project with up to $10,000,000 a piece. In his speech he explained the goal of the province to become the renewable resource source for the country with both ethanol and bio-deisel production facilties, many already underway.

Not only was the premier's announcement the icing on the cake for the Tisdale project but it signalled the industry that the province sees this as a huge potential for Saskatchewan's economy and the primary industry which is agriculture.
