This morning when asked about his attendance at the Next-Gen Leaders’ Debate (co-hosted by Future Majority, the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union and the University of Regina Students’ Union), Scott Moe doubled down on his refusal to attend.
In response, NDP Leader Ryan Meili provided the following statement:
“Scott Moe is out-of-touch with the concerns of young people in Saskatchewan. His wrong-headed decision to ignore an opportunity to speak to young people – in a forum organized by Saskatchewan youth – lets everybody down. I’m asking him to reconsider and join me in this important discussion about the future of our province.
“I’m running to be Premier for everyone in this province – including the young people who will shape the future direction of our province. We need leadership to get Saskatchewan’s youth involved in our democracy. It’s disappointing that Scott Moe is not willing to show that leadership.”
