Scott Moe Full Biography and Profile
Scott Moe was raised on a grain farm between Shellbrook and Parkside. After graduating from Shellbrook High School, Scott attended the University of Saskatchewan where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture.
Scott has deep roots in the agriculture community, growing up on a grain farm and being involved in the agriculture equipment industry for many years. He is proud of everything the industry has accomplished and strongly believes the industry will continue to be a driving force of the Saskatchewan economy.
Starting at a young age, Scott has always been an entrepreneur and has owned several businesses. He has worked tirelessly to make those businesses successful and will bring that same dedication and work ethic to the job as Premier.
Scott is proud of the community spirit that exists across Saskatchewan. He has been active through his work with the Economic Development Corporation, the Shellbrook and District Health Services Project Inc., and the Shellbrook and District Physician Recruitment committee.
He has also been involved in softball and hockey associations and coached many teams, helping to bring up the next generation of great Saskatchewan sports talent.
Scott and his wife Krista have lived in the Shellbrook area their entire lives and raised their two children in the community. They are proud of their roots and proud to call Shellbrook home.
Since being elected as an MLA for Rosthern-Shellbrook in 2011, Scott has served many roles in Premier Brad Wall’s government, including chairing committees, serving as Legislative Secretary to the Agriculture Minister and as Minister of Advanced Education.
Most recently, Scott served as the Environment Minister where he took to the national stage alongside Premier Wall to stand with Saskatchewan against the federal government’s carbon tax.
When the federal government suddenly introduced a carbon tax during a meeting of Environment Ministers from across the country, Scott was one of three ministers to take a stand and leave the meeting.
Throughout his tenure as Environment Minister he continued to stand with Saskatchewan against this unfair tax that would ultimately take over $2 billion out of the Saskatchewan economy, cost the average Saskatchewan family $1250 per year, and do nothing to reduce carbon emissions.
Scott remains steadfast in his opposition to a federally imposed carbon tax and will continue to do so as Leader of the Saskatchewan Party and Premier of Saskatchewan.
“We will continue to stand with Saskatchewan against the carbon tax. We will continue to stand for a sound financial plan for the Province of Saskatchewan. We will stand for strong businesses, strong communities and for each and every one of the now 1,161,365 people who call Saskatchewan home.” – Scott Moe, September 1, 2017.
