Kathleen O’Reilly is the NDP candidate for Regina Northeast

Associate university professor, bestselling author and Regina Public School Board trustee Kathleen O’Reilly was chosen Monday to be the New Democrat candidate for Regina Northeast the next provincial election.

“Kathleen is passionate about building a province in which everyone has the opportunities and tools to reach their full potential,” said NDP Leader Cam Broten. “That means a strong education system with supports for all students when they need them. That means it should be easier to get started in Saskatchewan, with more affordability for families.

“After a decade of resource boom, Saskatchewan families should have these advantages. It’s time for government spending to match people’s priorities.”

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.”
