We are pleased to announce that our leader, Shawn Setyo, has announced he will be running as the Saskatchewan Green Party candidate in the upcoming Saskatoon Meewasin by-election.
Shawn Setyo came to the Saskatchewan Green Party five years ago because he believed strongly that the Greens were the most forward thinking party in the province. Shawn has gone on to become the leader of the Saskatchewan Green Party in October of 2016, taking over the reins of the party from former leader Victor Lau. Shawn is a University of Saskatchewan graduate and works in Saskatoon for a tech and software company in the city. Son of immigrant parents, Shawn has seen the value of inclusivity and multiculturalism in making Saskatchewan stronger through its diversity of different peoples and cultures. This has translated into Shawn’s deep commitment to building partnerships with First Nations communities in our province. Shawn believes strongly in creating and developing a strong sustainable energy sector for our province with a focus on renewable technology to help create new jobs for Saskatchewan.
Shawn has stated he wants to use the by-election to focus on “the people of Saskatchewan and our needs for a government based on equality, social justice and sound environmental principles.”
