PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Updating the growth plan and hearing from MLAs on a variety of issues were the orders of the day at an annual summer retreat of the Saskatchewan Party.

Premier Brad Wall says the politicians meeting at Prince Albert National Park were asked to report on the issues that their constituents are concerned about.

He says two areas led the way, highways and seniors care.

MLAs also had an opportunity to hear two reports, one from Darryl Hickie on traffic safety and the other from Jennifer Campeau on bullying.

The premier says the recommendations from their reports will be made public before the fall sitting happens in October.

When it comes to the growth plan, the premier says they are on track in many areas, but admits to being behind in others and that they will keep working on that plan so as not to get complacent.
