The current premier of Saskatchewan is New Democrat Lorne Calvert, whose government was re-elected in the 2003 election with a slim majority government -- the NDP won 30 seats in the 58-seat Legislative Assembly, while the Saskatchewan Party won the remaining 28 seats.

 Rothmans, Benson & Hedges Inc. v. Saskatchewan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Section 6 of The Tobacco Control Act of Saskatchewan, he held, is not inconsistent with section 30 of the Tobacco Act of Canada, at least not in the sense contemplated by the doctrine of federal paramountcy.
The Government of Saskatchewan concedes the Tobacco Act of Canada is valid, including section 30, provided the statute be seen as having been enacted in exercise only of the legislative authority conferred on Parliament by section 91(27) of the Constitution Act, 1867- the power to legislate in relation to the criminal law.
This is critical to the Government of Saskatchewan's position, and the Government was not about to have its position eroded by conceding section 30 may have been enacted pursuant to some other legislative power, particularly one empowering Parliament to create rights as distinct from exceptions to offences.

 Backgrounder - Claim Settlements (Alberta and Saskatchewan) Implementation Act - Indian and Northern Affairs Canada   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Treaty land entitlement has been a major issue for Alberta and Saskatchewan First Nations that signed or adhered to Treaties 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10, which were concluded between 1874 and 1906.
Many of the reserve land obligations, however, were not fulfilled at the time of treaty due to inaccurate counts of band members or because not enough land was set apart when reserves were first surveyed.
With the exception of the recently enacted Manitoba Claim Settlements Implementation Act (Bill C-14) and the 1993 Saskatchewan Treaty Land Entitlement Act, existing federal laws were not designed with the requirements of the additions to reserves process in mind, and so are not geared to accommodating third-party interests in a commercially certain and expeditious way.
