NDP updates Shadow Cabinet for new session

Following the win in the Saskatoon Meewasin by-election and the addition of Ryan Meili to the caucus, NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon announced changes to the Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet. 

“The team of MLAs that I have the privilege of working with - both in and out of the Legislature - is an effective and strong group that has worked hard for the people of their constituencies and the entire province,” said Wotherspoon. “With Ryan joining the team, that work will get even stronger.”

Wotherspoon said the team will continue to stand up against the Sask. Party’s attacks on the province’s families and most vulnerable as well as their attempts to force all Saskatchewan people to pay for Sask. Party mismanagement, scandal and waste with their callous cuts and desperate sell-offs.

Wotherspoon named Meili the critic for Advanced Education, Poverty, Housing, SaskEnergy, and Francophone Affairs. Wotherspoon also highlighted a continued focus on the Sask. Party’s scandal and waste by appointing Saskatoon Centre MLA David Forbes Critic for Ethics and Democracy, and Saskatoon Nutana MLA Cathy Sproule responsible for the Sask. Party’s Global Transportation Hub (GTH) scandal.

“The Sask. Party simply hasn’t been straight with the people of Saskatchewan when it comes to the state of the finances,” Wotherspoon said. “We have got a ballooning deficit that the Sask. Party refuses to be honest about. Instead, they continue to threaten Saskatchewan people with more cuts and Crown sell-offs. Saskatchewan people are relying on us to hold this government to account for their lies, deceit, and dirty attacks. It is a responsibility that we take very seriously and we will fight for every day.”
