Beck assigns new critic portfolios after flipping two Sask. Party seats

REGINA - Fresh off two sweeping wins in the Coronation Park and Walsh Acres by-elections, Official Opposition Leader Carla Beck today issued critic portfolios to MLAs Jared Clarke and Noor Burki. 

“The Sask. Party has been in power for 16 years. Folks are tired of divisive politics and ready for a government that will actually get results,” said Beck. “It’s exciting that people are looking to the Sask. NDP for change.”

Last night on the floor of the Legislature, MLA Noor Burki and MLA Jared Clarke were officially sworn in as Members of the Legislative Assembly in the presence of 300 friends, family, community members and local leaders. 

“Although Jared and Noor are just being sworn in now, they hit the ground running and have already been hard at it for weeks,” said Beck. “It’ll take a lot more work to turn this province around, but I’m so hopeful for the future. I truly believe that Saskatchewan’s best days are ahead of us.”

Clarke has been named Environment Critic. Burki has been named Immigration Critic. All remaining Sask. NDP MLAs will continue on with their critic portfolios. Beck attributed her Party’s momentum to her team getting out into communities and focusing on healthcare and the cost of living.
