I look forward to working alongside Ryan and the NDP team for the next two years and doing my part to elect Ryan as the next Premier of Saskatchewan. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as an MLA and I look forward to pursing other opportunities.”
NDP Leader Ryan Meili said, “Cathy Sproule is a principled, passionate and articulate advocate for the truth. We are all better off for her involvement in our party and our province, and I wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”
