Aleana Young will be the NDP candidate in Regina University

Regina Public School Board trustee Aleana Young has been chosen by New Democrats in Regina University to be their candidate in the next provincial election.

“Aleana is a fantastic candidate, especially because of her deep belief that Saskatchewan can be so much better for everyday families, students and seniors,” said Cam Broten, Leader of Saskatchewan’s New Democrats. “After a decade of resource wealth, we should have the best education system in the nation. But, because this government has neglected education and wasted our resource wealth elsewhere, our kids are left with crowded classrooms and run down schools. Students have faced serious cuts to educational assistant help, and as the number of new Canadians in classrooms grows, the government has cut English as an Additional Language supports.

“I know we can do better. I know Saskatchewan’s kids deserve better. And, I know Aleana is passionate about fighting for the right solutions.”
