Lost in the retirement of Premier Brad Wall, NDP opposition leader Nicole Sarauer also had her last day as leader of the party.
Sarauer served as interm leader since June 20th, taking over from at-the-time interm leader Trent Wotherspoon.
Sarauer says the party had a busy and strong legislative session.
“It’s been a very busy session, it’s been a very busy time for us as a Party, a very busy time for the province,” Sarauer says. “It hasn’t been a slow period to say the least, so it’s been challenging but enjoyable. We have a fantastic team, and I think this session we really highlighted the strong opposition team we have.”

Sarauer will await the NDP leadership vote, which takes place March 3rd, to see who will take her spot.
Sarauer says she has been honored to serve as the leader of the party.
“There’s still a few more months left before I pass on the baton to our new, permanent leader, but I have been honored by the opportunity” Sarauer says. “Humbled by the support of my colleagues and looking forward to seeing what happens next.”
Trent Wotherspoon and Ryan Meili are running for leadership of the NDP next year.
