Four candidates in the running for Athabasca By-Election


Four candidates are in the running to be the next Saskatchewan MLA for the riding of Athabasca.


Clint Arnason — Buffalo Party of Saskatchewan (BPSK), Georgina Jolibois — New Democratic Party (N.D.P.), Jim Lemaigre — Saskatchewan Party, and Darwin Roy — Independent are the four candidates on the February 15th ballot.


This leaves the Green Party of Saskatchewan, the Progressive Conservatives Party of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Liberals without a candidate.


The Greens ran a candidate in the 2020 Saskatchewan Election, while the Buffalo Party of Saskatchewan did not.


The riding of Athabasca has been without a MLA since former MLA Buckley Belanger resigned as MLA to run for the Federal Liberals in the 2021 federal election.
