‘Sometimes they get so full of themselves’: Sask. Party MLA Don McMorris slams NDP

A prominent Saskatchewan Party MLA says the past two provincial elections are clear signs that the Saskatchewan NDP isn’t listening to the people of the province.

“I’m not going to single out Dwain Lingenfelter or Cam Broten, but, honestly, sometimes they get so full of themselves they don’t realize what’s going on at home,” said Don McMorris in the hours following his re-election in the riding of Indian Head-Milestone.

“Even though they talk really boastful, they better start checking at home. Neither one of them ever did.”

This is the second provincial election in a row the NDP leader lost his seat. On Monday, Broten was shocked in his Saskatoon Westview seat, losing to the Saskatchewan Party’s David Buckingham by 232 votes.

The NDP wound up with just 10 out of 61 seats, and received just 30.3 per cent of the popular vote (compared to 62.5 per cent of the popular vote for the Saskatchewan Party).

In the 2011 provincial election, then-NDP-leader Dwain Lingenfelter lost in Regina Douglas Park in a devastating province-wide showing for the party — the NDP’s worst since 1982. Lingenfelter immediately resigned his leadership after losing to Sask. Party candidate Russ Marchuk by almost 900 votes.

“Maybe they should check at home and see what people are really thinking instead of what they think and spreading all this mud, which they’ve done over the last three elections.”
