Regina’s Anti-Poverty Ministry and End Poverty Regina are sponsoring a petition calling on the provincial government to stop the CERB claw backs.
We will, however, keep collecting signatures over the holiday season in preparation for the 2021 session of the Legislature.

Information on where to send the petition Information on Petition on CERB clawbacks
Update December 13
An on-line petition has been set up. Please sign it as well as the paper petition. If it gets lots of signatures it will put additional pressure on the government to reverse the CERB clawbacks. It is, however, not a replacement for the paper petition, which is the only one that will get read out in the Legislature. http://chng.it/PKZLP9JN
A petition submitted in the Saskatchewan Legislature has to be a paper petition, written in the correct format, and personally signed. (The federal government does allow online petitions to be submitted in Parliament).
The petition calling for reversal of the CERB clawbacks was read in the Legislature on Wednesday, by NDP Social Services Critic Meara Conway. The petition readings start at 1:30 pm on the timer on the bottom of the screen and it is the second petition read (at about 1:31pm). http://csg001-harm01.canadacentral.cloudapp.azure.com/00298/Harmony/en/PowerBrowser/PowerBrowserV2/20201209/-1/8715?viewmode=3
The petition was also covered in the Leader-Post, earlier in the week: Petition launched to reverse Sask.’s CERB clawback https://leaderpost.com/news/
