The Progressive Conservative Party of Saskatchewan elected Ken Grey as its new leader on Saturday.
He was elected with 77 per cent of the vote at the party’s leadership convention in Moose Jaw.
“It’s an honour to be elected to lead Saskatchewan’s only true conservative party. I look forward to building a team that will make an impact in the next provincial election,” Grey said in a news release. “I would like to thank my fellow leadership candidate, Paul Carroll, for his passion for bettering our province.”
Grey’s platform is focused on lowering the province’s debt, restoring funding to key core services and reducing spending on “future expensive mega projects,” like the Regina Bypass and Global Transportation Hub, and the carbon tax.
Before diving into politics, Grey worked as a certified health care provider, insurance advisor and Paratransit bus driver.
