Saskatchewan NDP Leadership Race ... Is Now Actually A RACE!
First out of the starting block was former Deputy Premier, Dwain Lingenfelter.
The next few months saw a one person race ... not very exciting .... certainly NOT what Saskatchewan New Democrats need if they want to generate some excitement and public interest.
But what is this? We actually have a race now!
President of the Saskatchewan New Democrats, Yens Pederson, has thrown his hat into the ring and by golly ... we have an actual race!
Pedersen is a lawyer living with his family in Regina. He has an interesting background and was elected as president of the Saskatchewan party last year.
Political columnist, Murray Mandryk has provided a good article on Pederson and the race to date. Give it a read.
