Sask. byelections set for Sept. 21

Saskatchewan voters in two ridings will go to the polls Sept. 21 for byelections called by Premier Brad Wall.

REGINA — Saskatchewan voters in two ridings will go to the polls Sept. 21 for byelections called by Premier Brad Wall.

Wall’s Saskatchewan Party will face some stiff competition in Saskatoon Riversdale and Regina Douglas Park, which have both been strongholds for the NDP opposition.

But Wall appears to be undaunted.

“I look forward to the opportunity to highlight our government’s positive record, both in terms of economic growth and sharing the benefits of that growth with Saskatchewan people,” he said.

Newly-elected party leader Dwain Lingenfelter will run for the NDP in Regina, while the New Democrat candidate in Saskatoon is Danielle Chartier, vice-president of the Children’s Discovery Museum.

The Saskatchewan Party candidate in Regina is lawyer Kathleen Peterson while the party’s candidate in Saskatoon is Corey O’Soup, a teacher.

The Saskatchewan Party holds 38 of the 58 seats in the legislature, while the NDP has 18 seats.
