Saskatchewan needs Ryan Meili.

Our province will soon be electing a new Leader of the Saskatchewan NDP and I am proud to share my endorsement of Ryan Meili.

Over a decade ago, I was inspired by Ryan’s commitment to people and healthy communities when I witnessed his integral role in making the SWITCH - Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health in Saskatoon’s core neighbourhood become a reality, where I subsequently became a volunteer for the past decade.

Today, Ryan’s leadership and kind heart continues to inspire me to give back to the people of our province and beyond. As a pharmacist, educator, and First Nations person, I am energized by Ryan’s forward-thinking policies and commitment to universal pharmacare, better post-secondary education, and real reconciliation, to name a few.

Ryan believes that together we can build a fair and healthy Saskatchewan. Under Ryan’s leadership, I am confident that we will.

I encourage you to consider purchasing a membership for the Saskatchewan NDP by January 19th at www.ryanmeili.com.membership to be eligible to vote in this leadership race and join me in electing Ryan Meili as the leader of the party.
