Sask. NDP Opposition Leader Trent Wotherspoon looks back on 2016
By Lisa GoudyThe first words that come to mind for Trent Wotherspoon when thinking about 2016 are “interesting” and “really building.”
The year didn’t get off to a great start for the Saskatchewan New Democrats after a “very difficult election result,” said Wotherspoon, interim leader of the Official Opposition. In April’s election, the Sask. Party was re-elected with 51 seats and NDP won 10 seats. Former leader Cam Broten failed to win his seat and resigned his leadership. Wotherspoon has served as interim leader since April 23.
“I’m enjoying it. I’m proud and thankful to work with our impressive team of MLAs who are fully invested in this work,” he said.
