Heather McIntyre, a life-long Regina resident, will be the NDP’s candidate in Regina Pasqua in the next provincial election.
McIntyre’s nomination was uncontested, confirmed at a nomination meeting Saturday afternoon.
“I'm so pleased to have Heather McIntyre on my team and I know she will make an incredible MLA,” said NDP Leader Cam Broten. “Heather's family has been directly affected by this government's reckless decision to scrap the Film Employment Tax Credit, which has forced her husband to spend most of the year working on films outside of our province. I know that experience has increased her motivation to ensure that politics is always about people and families doing well.”
“As a volunteer and as a community leader, Heather has already made a significant difference here in Regina and throughout Saskatchewan. I’m looking forward to having Heather bring that same drive – along with her intelligence and compassion – to the Legislature as an MLA.”
McIntyre’s career is in television production, communications and marketing. She’s been an active volunteer, as a founding member of Equal Voice (Saskatchewan Chapter), and a volunteer for the Regina Folk Festival, Regina Education and Action on Child Hunger (REACH), Montessori School, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Community Advisory Board for Gemma House and Grace Haven.
Born and raised in the south end of Regina, she graduated from Ryerson University in Toronto before coming back to Saskatchewan. McIntyre and her husband Mark are the proud parents of four kids.
