Following the election of Vicki Mowat in the Saskatoon Fairview byelection and in the midst of the NDP leadership race, Leader of the Official Opposition Nicole Sarauer announced some changes to the NDP caucus’ critic portfolios.
“We’re a bigger and stronger team than we were before and we’re as focussed as ever on holding the Sask. Party to account and fighting their heartless cuts, unfair tax hikes, and desperate sell-offs,” Sarauer said. “This team will keep fighting for and standing with the Saskatchewan families and businesses that have been forced to pay the price for Sask. Party mismanagement, scandal, and waste.”
As part of the shuffle, the two caucus members taking part in the NDP leadership race have been relieved of their duties. Mowat, the newest member of caucus, is taking over as Critic for Advanced Education, Jobs, Poverty, Housing, Youth, Immigration, Status of Women, and the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority.
“Time and time again, this team has shown their skills and determination both in and out of the Legislature,” Sarauer said. “We will continue to hold the Sask. Party’s feet to the fire and we’ll keep reaching out to people across the province so we can keep building better and stronger vision for Saskatchewan together.”
