Mike Sinclair was acclaimed as the Saskatchewan New Democrat candidate for Regina Wascana Plains this evening as Saskatchewan NDP members took part in their first ever virtual nomination meeting in keeping with physical distancing protocols.
“These difficult times have shown yet again that Saskatchewan is a place where neighbours look out for one another,” said Sinclair. “We need a government that meets us halfway by putting people first.”
A trusted faith leader in his community, Mike has built an 18-year career in the Anglican Church, serving since 2011 as the Dean of Regina’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, where he works hard to improve people’s lives and lift up his neighbours and fellow community members. Mike’s volunteer involvement has included chairing a rural food bank and developing a police chaplaincy program. He is passionate about creating a stronger and safer Saskatchewan, and championing social and economic justice. If elected, Mike will put people first in every decision, and as a husband and father of three, he is committed to working for a strong, fair, and inclusive province for all Saskatchewan people and families.
“Right now Saskatchewan people are showing tremendous leadership,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “Mike’s a terrific example of somebody who has worked for and championed his community. He has that Saskatchewan grit and spirit, and is a great candidate for us to add to the team right now.”
Sinclair is the thirtieth candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election. He is the first ever provincial candidate to be nominated through a virtual nominating convention.
