NORQUAY — A Norquay man is hoping to get the nod from local New Democrats to run in the next provincial election.
Wynn Fedorchuk, who grew up on a small cattle farm west of Whitebeech, announced May 8 he will run for the NDP nomination in the Canora-Pelly constituency.
“My wife, Anna and I have deep roots in the community,” he said in a release. “We were born and raised here and following our education, made a conscious decision to return home and contribute to our community.”
The NDP have yet to set a date for the nomination meeting. Fedorchuk will have to have his candidacy approved before he can run for the nomination. The winner of the nomination will then be one of the names on the ballot for the election, scheduled for Oct. 28, 2024
A social worker and artist, Wynn said he is well aware of the many challenges facing rural Saskatchewan today.
“We can see first-hand how cuts to health care, education and general affordability concerns are affecting our community. The Saskatchewan Party is sitting on a resource windfall and instead of responding with tangible measures to help Saskatchewan people, chooses to ignore the issues each family is facing daily.”
