The Moe You Know
My wife Krista. We have one son, and one daughter.
Where did he grow up?
On a grain farm between Shellbrook and Parkside. Today I live in Shellbrook.
High school name?
W.P. Sandin Public School, home of the uniquely named "Aardvarks".
So...what is an Aardvark?
A nocturnal burrowing mammal with long ears, a tubular snout, and a long extensible tongue, feeding on ants and termites. Aardvarks are native to Africa and have no close relatives.
The unofficial slogan for the Aardvarks: first in the phonebook, first in our hearts. Note: I just made that up.
Favourite NHL team?
Edmonton Oilers. I know it has been a rough 10 years, but growing up I loved to watch Gretzky.
Hawaiian. I’ve taken some serious political heat on social media for disgracing pizza with fruit, but I challenge the doubters to try the pizza, because clearly, you never have.
Best outdoor activity to do when he's not being Premier?
Fishing, golfing or watersports.
Important fact: Premier Moe has indicated that he can hit the golf ball at least 40 yards further than former Premier Wall. At the time of publishing, former Premier Wall has not refuted this bold claim.
How do you drink your coffee?
Sunset or sunrise?
Favourite Netflix show?
House of Cards. It’s nothing like real politics, but I can’t help but love the show.
Favourite childhood movie?
Should socks and sandals ever be combined?
This is going to be like the pizza thing, isn't it? If it's cold. We do live in Saskatchewan after all.
