The Sask. Party is continuing to let down the most vulnerable in the province, with the University of Regina’s Child and Family Poverty in Saskatchewan: 2019 Report showing that one in four Saskatchewan kids is living in poverty.
The Sask. Party recently sent a flyer to Regina voters bragging about “investing in Regina’s economy,” but the flyer made no mention of the Regina Bypass, their single biggest expense in 13 years of government.
Why didn’t they mention it? Doesn’t the Sask. Party want to claim responsibility for building the most expensive stretch of flat road in our nation’s history?
Betty Nippi-Albright has been nominated as the Saskatchewan New Democrat candidate for Saskatoon Centre . Nippi-Albright won the nomination over her opponents Senos Timon and Naveed Anjum in front of hundreds of New Democrats in Saskatoon.
“We need a government that will stop letting people down and put people first,” said Nippi-Albright.
Doyle Vermette was nominated today to seek re-election as the Saskatchewan NDP candidate for Cumberland in the next election. Vermette was elected the MLA for Cumberland in a by-election in 2008 and re-elected in 2011 and 2016.

Addressing hundreds of party delegates in Prince Albert today, NDP Leader Ryan Meili laid out an economic vision rooted in early-years supports and local procurement.

SASKATOON – Matt Love has been nominated as the Saskatchewan New Democrat candidate for Saskatoon Eastview. In winning the nomination, Love defeated two other candidates, Tony Bassett and Keith Jorgensen, in front of hundreds of New Democrats last Thursday.
“As a teacher, I see first-hand the ways that cuts to education are affecting our schools and families,” said Love. “Our school divisions are being asked to do more with less, and it is time that we hold the Sask. Party accountable for their mismanagement and poor decisions. Education is an investment that we need to build a more inclusive, equitable and thriving province.”
