Another MLA Bids Farewell

Another MLA Bids Farewell

Sally is traveling the world so this week we have Eric Bell filling in! Eric is a former Saskatchewan NDP staffer and current Strategic Advisor for the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour. On the "doc"ket for this episode is the resignation this week of Saskatchewan Party MLA Mark Docherty. Kevin, Eric and Dale discuss Mark Docherty the man, what he has meant to the Saskatchewan Party government and city of Regina, what the by-election for Coronation Park could look like, and who the candidates may be for that race. Then they discuss the healthcare "deal" with the feds that hasn't yet been signed, and the backroom machinations that may be going on. They also discuss the latest move in Regina municipal politics between Mayor Sandra Masters and two other city councillors, and they give their thoughts on What Actually Mattered This Week. Thanks for listening!
