Allan makes case for fair fuel on day of stornoway meeting

Following on from the meeting last year between Sam Chambers of GB Oils and representatives of the island community, which I attended,the UK Government remains one of the largest beneficiaries of this unfair situation given the high proportion of the cost of fuel which goes straight to the UK Treasury in tax. I continue to campaign on this issue and should any constituents wish to raise any individual points with me they are welcome to get in touch.

Colonsay, Saskatchewan

History

Colonsay experienced a record setting 167-day-long frost-free period in 1978, which was, to the dismay of a number of residents, still not a long enough growing season for yams or sweet potatoes. The ship U-Sea Colonsay is named after the local potash mine.

Economy

The main economy of the area is agriculture featuring grain crops such as wheat, canola, barley, oats, rye, as well as lentils and peas. Livestock raised in the vicinity are cattle, hogs, sheep, and buffalo. The potash mine of Colonsay was first named Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, Colonsay, IMC Potash Colonsay and is now Mosaic Potash Colonsay. Potash is mined and sold to crop nutrient manufacturers for fertilizer, as well as for use as icemelter ingredient and water softener regenerant.

Shamed continues campaign against unnecessary marine environmental designations

Opposition to the designation has been strong with around forty formal objections submitted that I am aware of, including all but one of the  Western Isles councillors.
