Dueling Summer Tours

Dueling Summer Tours

Happy Canada Day! The SKoop is here on the holiday to discuss all the fun political stuff while you listen on the beach or at the campground! The team discusses Carla Beck's election as new leader of the Saskatchewan NDP and the leadership convention itself; Beck's plan to embark on a "Building to Win" tour of Saskatchewan; and the impressive communications plan rollout after her win. Then the SKoop team talks about the OTHER tour this summer - Premier Scott Moe has dispatched MLA Lyle Stewart and former MLA/MP Allan Kerpan on an "economic autonomy tour" to meet with folks around the province to discuss federal government grievances. The team discusses what that tour means, the importance of Stewart and Kerpan as the key leaders of the tour, and how the NDP may respond. Have a great weekend!
