This by-election is crucial. We need an experienced candidate who has a track record of bringing new people and new energy to the party. Please consider joining us in supporting Yens at the nomination meeting.
Here are just some of the reasons we are supporting Yens:
"I haven’t been this excited about an NDP candidate for some time. Yens has the work ethic, abilities and experience to immediately take on a leading role in our caucus and in an eventual NDP cabinet.”
- Kevin Yates, Former MLA for Regina Dewdney
"I endorse Yens Pedersen as our choice for Regina Northeast. Yens will be an effective and courageous advocate for our constituency, and won’t settle for the status quo when it comes to the environment, indigenous rights, healthcare, Crown corporations, and poverty."
- Terri Sleeva, community activist
“As a lawyer, a community activist, and businessman, Yens exemplifies honesty, fairness, and thoughtfulness. These are the qualities I want in my candidate.”
- Hazel Eros, senior medical social worker, HSAS member
"Yens is principled, hardworking and not afraid to stand up for what he believes in. He is a consistent voice against the injustices in our society that we should no longer be tolerating"
- Dwayne Yasinowski, former NDP Candidate in Regina Northeast
“He listens, is thoughtful in his responses to issues, but also stands firm for what he believes in. I've spent time with him door knocking and he's both personable and persuasive. I'd love to see him become an MLA and add to our strong, savvy team in the legislature.”
- Crystal Dawn Palmer, party activist, COPE Local 397 Member
“Yens is a caring and considerate candidate who can empathize with the needs of those who are struggling and not being treated fairly by society. I’ve noticed at NDP conferences that he’s always the one to stand up and ask the hard questions. He’s willing to struggle with issues to come to better solutions and understandings."
- Jessilynn Mckim, party activist
“Yens is the candidate who has the best chance of winning this by-election. We would be fortunate to have him as our representative.”
- Lorne Nystrom, Former NDP MP for Regina-Qu’Appelle
