Saskatchewan Says Conference Board of Canada to Study Proposed Potash Buy

Saskatchewan Energy and Resources Minister Bill Boyd said today the Conference Board of Canada will conduct “an independent analysis of a proposed takeover” of Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc.

Boyd said in a statement posted on the government’s website the study will be completed and made public by Sept. 30. He also said the study, which will identify the “risks and opportunities” to the province, will be the basis for the province’s submission to the Investment Canada review done by Industry Minister Tony Clement.
