No big suprise

The Saskatchewan NDP have elected Dwayne Lingenfelter as their new leader.

Former deputy premier Dwain Lingenfelter was elected leader Saturday at the NDP’s annual convention.

First elected to the legislature in 1978, he held several portfolios in the cabinet of former premier Roy Romanow.

Lingenfelter left public life in 2000 to work with a Calgary-based oil company. He returned to the political arena in October 2008 to run for leadership of the NDP.

The big question is can he through the Saskatchewan Party off their game.  So far they have done an amazing job of running the province and people seem to genuinely like Premier Brad Wall.
