CPAC’s Morgan Campbell reports on the fate of the NDP in two ridings in Saskatchewan, Regina–Lewvan and Saskatoon West. The party took both seats from the Conservatives in 2015, one by only 132 votes, and this time around the Conservatives are working hard to take both back. Sheri Benson is the incumbent New Democrat in Saskatoon West and her main adversary is the Conservative Brad Redekopp, the owner of Cherry Creek Homes. The Liberal is Shah Rukh and Sawn Setyo is the Green.
Just south of Saskatoon in Regina-Lewvan, the NDP candidate is Jigar Patel, the owner of three grocery stores in the city. Warren Steinley, the MLA for Regina Walsh Acres, is the Conservative. The Liberals are being represented by Winter Fedyk and Naomi Hunter is the Green Party candidate.
