Sask New Democrat MLA Resigns To Run As Federal Liberal

Joan Beatty, a New Democrat MLA from northern Saskatchewan has announced that she will be resigning her seat in the Legislature to seek election as a Federal Liberal Candidate.

OTTAWA - A former Saskatchewan NDP cabinet minister has officially been selected to run as a Liberal candidate in one of four byelections to be held on March 17. "Joan Beatty brings to the Liberal Party of Canada a strong mix of local knowledge, aboriginal expertise, political experience and a tradition of service to the people of Saskatchewan," Liberal Leader Stephane Dion said in a news release late Thursday.
"I am confident that her passion for her home riding of Desnethe-Missinippi-Churchill River, coupled with her passion for her province and country, will make her a strong member of Parliament and I am so pleased to welcome her to our caucus."

I broke the news to saskblogs.

This is what 'citizen journalism' is all about!

Oh by the way .... so much for David Orchard and his bid to be the candidate in that riding.

David Orchard what a nut!!

Tells you something about the Liberals when Goodale controls the Sask organization

Good to see her go - this woman leaves her seat only weeks after being elected? This is exactly the sort of character I *don't* want in the NDP.

Wow, where was the Leader Post and CBC news on this one? I haven't heard this reported in the media in Saskatchewan.

Very interesting turn of events in Saskatchewan politics for sure.

I agree! Thank gawd for bloggers!
