On the Back Foot

On the Back Foot

Spring is here, and The SKoop team is ready for another wonderful episode! The crew discusses a very full week of Saskatchewan politics, including the NDP's "cost of living" dividend policy announcement and what their proposed 1% surtax on oil and potash companies could mean for Saskatchewan's resource sector; affordability and the hastily-announced increase of the province's minimum wage to $15 by 2024; a brief analysis on premier's estimates this past week; and they take a mailbag question on their favourite MLA or staffer from the other side of the aisle, and give their Hansard Hot Takes! 


  • Kevin Doherty, former Saskatchewan Party MLA and cabinet minister, and current Senior Strategy Advisor at Prairie Sky Strategy; 
  • Sally Housser, NDP insider and former Saskatchewan NDP chief of staff, and current Senior Manager, Public Affairs at Canadian Strategy Group; and 
  • Dale Richardson, podcaster and former director of communications for the Saskatchewan Party.
