NDP Leadership Candidate Dewar Campaigns in Support of Saskatchewan New Democrats

Dewar calls on Stephen Harper to start listening to Prairie farmers

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2011) - NDP leadership candidate Paul Dewar hit the campaign trail in Saskatchewan to support NDP candidate in the provincial election.

"I'm proud to lend a hand to a strong team of NDP candidates who understand the challenges families face," said Dewar. "I know that by working together we can make life better for Canadian families."

Dewar, who will canvass with 11 different NDP candidates in Regina and Moose Jaw, criticized Stephen Harper's push to abolish the Canadian Wheat Board single desk without a vote of producers.

"It's time for Stephen Harper to show producers that their opinion matters," said Dewar. "Hardworking farmers here in Saskatchewan and across the prairies deserve a say on the future of their Wheat Board."

Dewar also committed to work with all levels of government to protect and strengthen our affordable housing and hospitals, and support family farms.

"Being a leader means listening to what Canadians have to say and getting down to work on their priorities – but Stephen Harper doesn't seem to get it," said Dewar. "I'm in Saskatchewan to hear from families about the things they care about most. I know that together we can build a stronger, more caring Canada."
