Scope and content
The fonds consists of records created, accumulated and used by Lorne Scott from 1995 to 1998 as Minister of Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management. The fonds also contains records created in 1995 by Berny Wiens, Scott's predecessor in the portfolio.
The fonds consists of four series: Minister of Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management, 1995; Minister of Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management, 1996; Minister of Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management, 1997; Minister of Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management, 1998.
The records in each series were divided into three main categories where applicable: Department, Environment, and Resource Management. They were arranged alphabetically at the sub-series, sub-sub series and file levels.
The files typically include memoranda, correspondence, briefing notes, news releases, publications, petitions, speaking notes, newspaper clippings and legislation, including minister's orders, regulations and orders-in-council.
The Saskatchewan Archives did not receive any records Scott created in 1999 while Minister of Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management.
