Less is More: Small Governments Expand Freedom (Regina)
Guest Speaker: The Honourable Tim McMillan, Minister Responsible for CIC, ITO, ISC, SGI & SLGA
How is a government’s success measured? Is it the level of taxation, access to medical care, length of highways built, or delivery of public programs? While these measures are important, Tim McMillan, Saskatchewan Minister of Crown Investments, argues that there is one essential measure of a government’s success: the expansion of freedom for citizens. From regulations on washrooms to reforming the civil service, Minister McMillan outlines opportunities for governments to both increase freedom and deliver better outcomes.
About the Guest:
Tim McMillan grew up on his family farm, 20 miles east of Lloydminster, near where the McMillan family homesteaded more than 100 years ago. It was in these formative years on the farm that the spark of political interest was lit and fostered in a family that was very involved in the community. Tim was elected in the 2007 and 2011 general elections. Previous to his election as an MLA, Tim operated an oilfield service company. His understanding of the oil industry and agricultural sector coupled with his background in economics, make Tim the ideal representative for Lloydminster as an economic powerhouse in Saskatchewan. In June 2010, Tim joined the provincial cabinet as Minister Responsible for Crown Investments Corporation, Saskatchewan Government Insurance, Information Services Corporation, and the Information Technology Office. In September 2010, Tim was also appointed as the Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority.
