Former Kindersley MLA and Saskatchewan Economy Minister Bill Boyd has pleaded guilty to two charges relating to environmental management laws and violations of wildlife habitat protection.

The Ministry of Environment confirmed today that Boyd pleaded guilty to one charge under the Environmental Management and Protection Act and another under the Wildlife Habitat Protection Act.

Two other charges under the Environmental Management and Protection Act have also been dropped.

Boyd appeared in court today at the Kindersley Masonic Lodge and his case was adjourned for the fourth time.

The charges were originally filed this past summer when Boyd was still a sitting MLA, nearly three weeks after the provincial Water Security Agency granted him approval for irrigation work on land adjacent to protected wildlife habitat.

Boyd is now scheduled to make his next appearance in court on April 17 for sentencing.
