Episode details

On Tuesday, voters in the northern Saskatchewan riding of Athabasca will be heading to the polls in a provincial byelection. This came about after NDP MLA Buckley Belanger resigned the seat to run for the federal Liberals in the last election. That run wasn’t successful, and now the New Democrats are hoping to hold a seat they have only lost once since 1975.

This vote comes just days after Premier Scott Moe announces a lifting of proof-of-vaccination requirements in the province.

To discuss the upcoming byelection and the state of politics in Saskatchewan, I’m joined today by Adam Hunter, the provincial affairs reporter for the CBC in Regina.
