The Saskatchewan NDP have nominated current NDP Leader Ryan Meili as the candidate for Saskatoon Meewasin for the next provincial election. Also this weekend, Meili promised an incentive for people to conserve energy, where the province would help pay up-front for energy-saving upgrades. Ryan Meili says the money would be paid back over time from the customer’s power or energy bills, based on the value of the power generated or fossil fuel energy that’s saved. Meili says people want to make the shift to clean energy, but the up-front cost stops them, even though it would save a lot of money over the long term. The next provincial election is expected to take place in 2020.
