Dave McGrane

I was proud and humbled to be elected as President of the Saskatchewan NDP at our October 2016 convention. I am optimistic about the future of our party. Through hard work and listening attentively to the concerns of the people of Saskatchewan, we will go into the next election stronger than ever and ready to win!

On my website, you will find information about myself, my activities, and the party. I will periodically be posting blogs outlining some of my thoughts about the future of our party and the future of our province, so check back often. You can also sign up for my e-newsletter to keep informed of my activities as President and the activities of the Saskatchewan NDP provincial executive.

The stakes are high. We have a mean-spirited Saskatchewan Party government that is bent on cutting the front line services that people need, privatizing our Crown Corporations, and avoiding real action to combat climate change. I am asking for your help as we roll up our sleeves and get to work to win the next election and give the people of Saskatchewan the government that they deserve!
