***This is the fifth and final part of a five part series on all the candidates running for leader of the Saskatchewan Party and Premiership of the province.
One of the front runners for the Saskatchewan Party leadership is focused on improving trade.
Saskatoon Northwest MLA Gord Wyant says some of the biggest issues in the province are those in the agricultural sector.
Should he be selected as the next Premier, Wyant vows to improve the methods to make Saskatchewan agricultural exports easier to access on the global market.
“I’ve indicated very early on that I want to hold an infrastructure summit within 60 days of forming government to make sure that we’re planning our infrastructure needs for the next 20, 25, 30 years so that we can continue to get our products to market.”
Wyant says once Brad Wall announced he was stepping down, he saw an opportunity to offer a new and strong vision for the province’s future.
“I very much think I had a voice to offer with respect to the Party, and policies and directions, which I think the Party needs to spend some time to think about,” Wyant says. “Looking at the opportunity to be a part of that conversation in terms of leadership was important to me.”
Having practiced law for over 20 years and been in public service for large part of his life, Wyant says he felt important to add his voice to better inform debates on public policy.
