The Ground Game Begins

The Ground Game Begins

Just in time for the Labour Day long weekend, The SKoop has a new episode for you! This week on the podcast, Sally, Kevin and Dale discuss first discuss the attempted takeover of the PC Party of Saskatchewan by delegates from the Saskatchewan United movement, and the apparent inability of Sask United to form their own official party. Then they discuss what the candidates are doing the first week of the Saskatoon Meewasin by-election campaign, including door knocking to identify voters and other activities. They analyze the new "Shuffling the Deck" advertisement the Saskatchewan Party has released, what the ad is really saying and who it is targeting, and what the NDP's first attack ad should be. Then they close out by discussing the accosting of Chrystia Freeland and violence towards politicians and staff. 


  • 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.
