About Nicole

Nicole White

“Saskatoon Meewasin represents what is best in this great province: people who are forward thinking, diverse, cultured, and committed to building a better future for all. I would be honoured to represent you as your next MLA and to work together with you to build a stronger, fairer and more sustainable Saskatchewan.
Cam Broten and his team of MLAs have been doing an extraordinary job representing our party and our province. They have been strong voices for seniors’ care, champions of human rights, and fair critics of the abysmal Lean roll out. I would like to add my voice to that team.”
