SK Liberals announce interim leader

The Saskatchewan Liberal Party has named a new interim leader.

Robert Rudachyk takes over from Naveed Anwar who announced his resignation earlier this month.

Rudachyk, who grew up in Weyburn, but currently lives in Saskatoon, says he definitely has an agenda that he hopes can be carried out as he attempts to have the Liberals gain a seat in the provincial Legislature.

“My first task is to continue building the Liberal team to give Saskatchewan voters a viable alternative at the ballot box, one that will hold Scott Moe and the Saskatchewan Party to account for all the divisions they have sown to divert from their fiscal mismanagement, short-sighted policies, and failure to adapt for the future,” Rudachyk said in a release. “We must strive to diversify our economy to better withstand the boom and bust cycles of commodities, and work towards adapting our energy industry. Oil and gas will always be a part of our economy, but tapping into our nearly unlimited potential for renewable energy such as solar, wind, and geothermal, and investing in power storage capabilities would create economic opportunities and ensure a long-term, secure energy supply.”

Rudachyk will be running in the upcoming provincial election in the riding of Saskatoon Westview.  The Saskatchewan Party’s David Buckingham currently has that seat.
