The province’s new opposition leader has named his shadow cabinet, but it doesn’t differ much from what was in place before Ryan Meili defeated Trent Wotherspoon to become the new leader of the Saskatchewan NDP earlier this month.
Saying he didn’t want to shake things up too much, most NDP MLA’s are retaining the portffolio they had when Nicole Sarauer was interim leader, but there are some changes.
Wotherspoon replaces Nicole Rancourt as social services critic.
Meili also appointed Sarauer to be house leader and justice critic, Carla Beck as deputy leader. and Warren McCall, who had the deputy leader post now becoming deputy house leader. David Forbes will remain as caucus chair.
Meili and the rest of the NDP will get to work next week when a new session of the Saskatchewan Legislature begins. That session will not only begin with the NDP having a new leader, but the governing Saskatchewan Party having one as well as Scott Moe replaced Brad Wall to become Premier earlier this year
