New Gen New Democrats Ready To Challenge Conservative MP's In Saskatchewan
The bottom line is that Saskatchewan's New Democratic Party is alive and well and the brain trust of the ruling Saskatchewan Party ignore it at their peril.
However, we are much more likely to have a Federal election held before the next provincial vote, which isn't slated until the fall of 2011.
Harper's Conservative operatives believe that they already have most of Saskatchewan's Federal ridings in the bag for the next campaign. Not so fast! An ongoing investigation by the RCMP into the illegal use of Canadian Wheat Board voters lists by some sitting Saskatchewan Conservative Members of Parliament is still underway here. The results of that investigation may tar the Tories with some very bad publicity just as voters go to the polls.
Be prepared to see some very high caliber, dedicated New Democrats go after the Conservatives in the next federal campaign. Regina lawyer, Noah Evanchuk is rumoured to be throwing his hat in the ring for the New Democrats in Palliser and you can expect a few other dedicated candidates to make life difficult for Conservatives like Andrew Sheer, Tom Lukiwski and others.
