Sask NDP expresses solidarity with Ukraine, sets timetable for leadership contest

Saskatchewan’s NDP over the weekend approved a solidarity motion with the people of Ukraine, as well as all Saskatchewan people with friends and family in the region.

The measure includes a call on the federal government to speed up the settlement process for those fleeing the conflict as well as a call for more resources to be granted to settlement agencies in Saskatchewan to support newcomers.

The Provincial Council also is putting the framework in place as they prepare to select a new leader at their convention in June.

Over the weekend, they set the rules and the timing for the leadership vote.

The criteria for becoming a leadership candidate include a stipulation that the person needs the signatures of at least 100 Saskatchewan NDP members, half of whom are women or gender diverse, from at least twenty provincial constituencies.
