Beaudin to be the New Democrat Candidate in Saskatoon Southeast for 2020

Pamela Beaudin was nominated as the Saskatchewan New Democrat candidate for Saskatoon Southeast this evening. Beaudin was one of five Saskatchewan NDP candidates nominated tonight as members across the province voted virtually, in a historic first. Beaudin won a contested nomination with members voting online or by phone.

“Now more than ever, we need a government that puts people first and leaves no one behind,” said Beaudin. “Unfortunately, we aren’t seeing that yet and that’s largely due to our government’s failure to provide for working people and families.”

Pamela Beaudin is a Saskatoon community leader and environmental engineer. Pamela has a long history of advocating for her community and being involved as a leader, and most recently was appointed to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Council for the city of Saskatoon. Pamela graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a BSc in mechanical engineering, and after beginning her career in the energy industry, chose to take her career down the path of sustainable development. There, she accepted a role as an environmental engineer where she has worked to create lasting and sustainable change in the energy industry ever since. Today, Pamela lives in Saskatoon, raising her twin boys with her husband.

“Pamela is another really strong addition to our growing team,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “With her background in science and engineering, and her commitment to environmental sustainability, she will make for a great member of a government focused on evidence-based and people-first policies.”

Pamela Beaudin, along with the four other candidates nominated this evening, brings the Saskatchewan NDP to thirty-six nominated candidates for the 2020 provincial election.
