Sask NDP Leadership Candidate Erin Weir Guest Speaker At Conference With Finance Minister Jim Flaherty And Bank Of Canada's Mark Carney

Followers of the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party leadership race will note that candidate, Erin Weir will be sharing the podium with Canada's Finance Minister, Jim Flaherty and Bank of Canada President Mark Carney at the “Canada in the Pacific Century” conference hosted by Canadian Council of Chief Executies - September 24th - 25th in Ottawa.

Erin Weir is an economist and is taking a short time away from the leadership race to guest speak at the conference, His successful campaign launch to lead Saskatchewan's New Democrats has been followed closely by political watchers and pundits alike over the last week.

"Erin Weir  was the next contestant to launch his campaign. And while some might point to the consistent flurry of activity surrounding Weir's every media appearance as the most prominent feature of his campaign so far, the more important contribution looks to be found in his focus on policy. 

Most obviously, a proposal to ban corporate and union donations to Saskatchewan political parties earned immediate approval, not only from all of his leadership competitors, but also beyond party lines. The latter point might be crucial for Weir; while most of his proposals figure to be relatively uncontroversial within the NDP, his ability to shape Saskatchewan's broader political scene - both by proposing ideas that earn broad support, and challenging Brad Wall to act on them - might go a long way toward convincing NDP members that Weir can lead the party and the province."
