A couple of interesting things to note.
- The Saskatchewan Party is leading in Saskatoon Eastview and in Meewasin which puts Judy Junor and Frank Quenellâ€™s seats at risk. Both are longtime NDP MLAâ€™s and former cabinet ministers. Quenell has pulled difficult elections out in the past and the 17% Liberal support could easily go to Quenell. Donâ€™t call it for Roger Parent yet.
- As for Judy Junor, she has traditionally done well in the riding, Corey Tochor looks like a credible candidate for the Saskatchewan Party who see it as a riding they can win.
- Outside of Saskatoon Meewasin, there is no area in province where there is double digit support for the Liberal Party, including Ryan Baterâ€™s riding of North Battleford. Since no Liberal leader has won their seat since Linda Haverstock did, I doubt we will see a Liberal in the legislature and I would doubt that the Liberal Party will reach the 15% of vote needed to qualify for reimbursement of election expenses. Could this be the election that kills the Liberal Party of Saskatchewan?
