Award-winning film costume designer, educator and journalist Brenda Shenher was confirmed Saturday as the New Democrat candidate in the Wood River constituency.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Brenda to the team,” said NDP Leader Cam Broten. “She’s passionate about Saskatchewan, and as a successful film-industry worker, she knows first-hand how the Sask. Party’s short-sighted decision to scrap the film employment credit and decimate the film industry did real damage. They hurt our economic diversity, lost jobs and investment, and forced the workers and families that paid the mortgage with those great jobs to pay for the Sask. Party’s stubbornness.
“I believe Saskatchewan is just scratching the surface of our incredible potential. It's time to give every child the education and opportunity to reach their full potential, and give young people more thriving industries to build their careers in, right here at home. From the film industry to green technologies and research and development, we need to be doing so much more to build a stronger Saskatchewan.”
