Yens Pedersen Illustrates Generational Change Occurring In Sask New Democrats

Yens Pedersen is a Regina lawyer who sought the leadership of the Saskatchewan New Democrats last year. He brought a breath of fresh air into the race and has certainly made his mark in the ranks of the provincial party. Yens today announced that he is seeking the NDP nomination for the constituency of Regina South currently held by Bill Hutchinson of the Saskatchewan Party.

During my interview of Dwain Lingenfelter, days after he won the leadership of the Saskatchewan NDP, I expressed my concern about the need for generational transition in the provincial wing of the party. Mr. Lingenfelter heartily agreed.

The by-election victory of Danielle Chartier from Saskatoon Riversdale as well as the election of Cam Broten and Trent Wotherspoon in 2007 proves that generational renewal is alive and well in the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party.

Further proof of this can also be found in the candidacy of Noah Evanchuk for the Federal seat of Palliser and in the candidacy for the vice-presidency of the party by Kent Peterson.

The disgraced Saskatchewan Party government of Brad Wall is desperately trying to spin that they are 'competent'. Truth is that they are a tired old hodgepodge of former Reformers, camouflaged Progressive Conservatives, right wing Liberal turncoats, 'red scare' wing nuts, and the flotsam and jetsam of Saskatchewan's extreme Right.

Not to mention the candidacy of Jaime Garcia who is running for the nomination in Coronation Park.

But, yes, it's wonderful to see young, talented and engaged people bringing fresh energy to the party.
