Saskatoon, SK – Last night, Bronwyn Eyre was acclaimed as the Saskatchewan Party Candidate for the Constituency of Saskatoon Stonebridge-Dakota for the next provincial election, expected in 2020.
“I’m looking forward to the upcoming election and continuing to represent this dynamic, diverse, rural-urban constituency.” Eyre said. “Thank you to everyone for their support.”

Throughout the province we’ve built 40 new schools and provided major renovations to another 25 in the past 10 years, with 2 more new builds currently underway. Soon we will see the opening of the new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital, which will serve families across our province.”
