Mr. Reiter: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, to you and through you to this Assembly, I‟d like to introduce to you in your gallery a friend of mine, Paul Herd. Paul, give us a wave so we know who we‟re talking about.

Paul‟s originally from Milden. When he graduated high school, he joined the US [United States] Army, had a stellar 20-plus-year career there. He has since retired from the army and now is in private business in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And I‟d like to welcome him to the Assembly. And I‟d like to point out to him that there‟s thousands of people moving back to Saskatchewan, and his family and friends hope eventually he‟ll join them. Please give him a warm welcome.

Next to Donna is my sister, Laura Reiter, and my brother . . . sorry, my sister, Laura, and my brother-in-law — she changed her name; it always confuses me — and my brother-in-law, Eldon Schwab of Wilkie. And seated down here with us is my mother and father, Ed and Elizabeth Reiter of Unity. They were here for an important function for me last night, and they’re joining us in the Assembly today, and I ask everybody to please give them a warm welcome.

Mr. Reiter: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, to you and through you to this Assembly, I’d like to introduce a couple of gentlemen in the west gallery. First of all a good friend of mine, Mr. Jim Angus. Jim’s the administrator for the RM [rural municipality] of Harris and is in town this week for the annual convention of the RM [Rural Municipal] Administrators Association. Jim and I have been good friends for a lot of years, and in fact he was my campaign manager during the recent election.

Did a bang-up job, I might add. With Jim is Dave Dmytryshyn. Dave is from Alberta. He’s involved with the Municipal Administrators’ Association there and is here as a fraternal delegate to the convention. I ask you to please give these gentlemen a warm welcome.

While I’m on my feet, Mr. Speaker, I’d also like to take the opportunity to introduce to you and through you to this Assembly a group of 43 grade 8 students from Rosetown High School. With them are teachers Norm Cline, Ken Boyd, and Vicki Moore as well as chaperones Blaine McGonigal, Shawna Goyer, and my curling friend, Wayne Jensen. And I’m sure you’ll agree, Mr. Speaker, with that many Rosetown students in the Assembly, the air just seems brighter and happier today. So I look forward to talking to them later. Please give them a warm welcome.

With him is Doug Steele, a director of SARM. And the third gentleman, who isn’t wearing the funny coloured jacket, is Larry Grant, a councillor with the RM [rural municipality] of Val Marie. I’d ask everyone to give them a warm welcome.


13 March 2008 - RM of Harris Officials & Dwayne Meisner

Mr. Reiter: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To you and through you it is my privilege to introduce to you some friends of mine from Harris. In your gallery, Mr. Speaker, is some representatives that are here attending the SARM [Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities] convention from the RM [Rural Municipality] of Harris — Administrator Jim Angus, a long-time friend and colleague of mine, and with them are Reeve Ted Gross, councillors Dan Mireau and David Husband. And I'd ask you to please welcome them to our Assembly.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. While I'm on my feet, I'd also like to introduce to the Assembly another intern, Dwayne Meisner. I've had the privilege of working with Dwayne over the past few weeks. He's a fine young man with a tremendous work ethic. He also is in the intern program. And as luck would have it, he's also originally from Eston, which is home to one of our fine young MLAs [Member of the Legislative Assembly] in the Rosetown-Elrose constituency. So anyway, Mr. Speaker, I'd ask the Assembly to please welcome Dwayne as well.


12 March 2008 - RM of St Andrews Officials

Mr. Reiter: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To you and through you, Mr. Speaker, it’s my pleasure to introduce to you in your gallery some good friends from Rosetown, representatives from the RM [rural municipality] of St. Andrews who are in town for the SARM [Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities] convention and broke away from the deliberations to join us in the Assembly today.

We have Reeve Ken Ogle, councillors Jim Wickett, Geoff Legge, Garry Nisbet, Kirk Fensom, and Kelly McFaull. And the rose between the thorns is Joan Babecy, who I had the good fortune to work with for about 10 years, who is now the very competent and capable administrator for the RM of St. Andrews.

So I’d ask all my colleagues to welcome them to the Assembly.
