Vicki Mowat, a lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan and Canadian Forces Reserves Captain, will be the NDP’s candidate in Saskatoon Fairview in the next provincial election.
Mowat was acclaimed at a nomination meeting Wednesday night where NDP Leader Cam Broten welcomed her to the team.
“Vicki cares about building a Saskatchewan that gives everyone a chance to get ahead,” said Broten. “I’m looking forward to having an MLA in Saskatoon Fairview who is listening to families, and fighting for the things that really matter to them – including dealing with the cost of living pressures and long waits and run-down infrastructure in Saskatoon’s hospitals.
“Vicki’s a great candidate, and I know she’ll be an excellent MLA for the families of Saskatoon Fairview.”
Broten said he’s pleased with the level of fresh enthusiasm and the work going on in the Saskatoon Fairview NDP constituency association, where a large, united group of volunteers has been working with Mowat.
Mowat works as a sociology lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan, teaching for the College of Arts & Science, St. Thomas More College, and the Arts & Science Transition Program at Royal West Campus. She is also active with the Canadian Forces Reserves, holding the rank of Captain, and instructing both adult officers and teenage cadets.
Mowat graduated from E.D. Feehan Catholic High School in 2003, and holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree and a Master of Arts degree in Sociology, both from the University of Saskatchewan. In January 2013, she received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, presented to honour Canadians making significant contributions to the country.
