Saskatchewan Premier Calls Election Campaign

How's that for a provocative headline?

News Story

Voters in the Saskatoon-area constituency of Martensville will be going to the polls in a byelection March 5.

On Monday, Premier Lorne Calvert called an election in the constituency that has been vacant since the death of Saskatchewan Party MLA Ben Heppner last September.

Calvert said he wanted the election to be held before the start of the spring sitting of the legislature, March 7.

Heppner's daughter Nancy has been nominated by the Saskatchewan Party. The Liberals have nominated Nathan Friesen, while the New Democrats have chosen John Tzupa as their candidate.
