New Democrats have selected Ryan Meili to be their candidate in the upcoming by-election in Saskatoon Meewasin.
“Since the last election, the Sask Party has attacked the most vulnerable and cut funding and staff for our schools and our hospitals,” said Meili. “This by-election is an opportunity for the people of this riding to send a clear message that they can’t keep making Saskatchewan people pay the price for their mismanagement. I’m very excited to be a part of this important campaign.”
Meili lives in Saskatoon with his wife and their son.
He is a family doctor, a med school teacher at the University of Saskatchewan, and the founder and executive director of Upstream.
“Ryan will make an excellent addition to our team in the legislature,” said Leader Trent Wotherspoon. “This by-election is a great chance to stand up for the people of Saskatchewan and send a clear message to the Sask. Party and strengthen our team.”
