For the first time as premier, Scott Moe will sit down with the prime minister Friday afternoon.
Justin Trudeau is spending the day in the province’s capital. His first stop was at the RCMP Depot to announce Brenda Lucki as the first female commissioner for the national police force.

From there he will head to the George Bothwell library to talk about the parental leave that was announced in the budget.
In the afternoon he will arrive at the Saskatchewan legislature to begin a brief meeting with Moe.
Despite his opposition to the federal carbon tax, Moe believes the two can find common ground.
“We’ll disagree on those certain policy items but there’s a number of policy items where I think there are opportunities for us to work together as well,” Moe said Thursday.
Moe explained those policy items include the export market and getting Saskatchewan product, whether it be via rail or pipeline, to tidewater to the markets that want it.
“We will be raising that with the Prime Minister and having a good discussion about some recent tensions with that and how we are able to help,” Moe maintained. “Ultimately at the end of the day what Saskatchewan needs is access to those markets through free and open trade.”
Trudeau arrived in Regina Thursday night for a Liberal Party fundraiser.
