A provincial minister will be coming to the lakeland next week to see how services could be improved.

Service Alberta Minister Nate Glubish is embarking on a provincewide tour to meet Albertans and discuss the path forward to reducing obstacles that affect their lives, the province announced in a press release yesterday.

Glubish will be in Cold Lake and Bonnyville on Friday, Aug. 30, before making a stop in St. Paul and Myrnam on the following Saturday.

“I have heard about specific challenges that Alberta communities are facing, from broadband service in rural Alberta to local registries and mobile home tenancy issues in more urban settings,” Glubish said in the release.

“This is why it is important to go out and hear directly from Albertans who are in the best place to offer insight into the difficulties they face when accessing services.”

He added that this tour is the first in five years.
