Cabinet Changes Announced

Premier Moe today announced changes to his cabinet including a new Agriculture Minister and a new Minister of Highways and Infrastructure following the resignation of Lyle Stewart from cabinet for health reasons.

  • David Marit becomes Minister of Agriculture.  Marit previously served as Minister of Highways and Infrastructure.
  • Lori Carr becomes Minister of Highways and Infrastructure.  Carr previously served as Legislative Secretary to the Minister of Finance and Government Deputy Whip.
  • Deputy Premier Gordon Wyant remains Minister of Education, while adding responsibility for SaskBuilds.

“I am confident that both Dave and Lori will bring an important perspective to their new portfolios, and I look forward to working with them as we stand up for Saskatchewan” said Moe.  “I would also like to thank our Deputy Premier as he takes on additional responsibility in an incredibly important file to our province’s infrastructure needs.  Lyle Stewart will remain a strong mentor and advisor to our cabinet when it comes to supporting our agriculture sector while we stand with him in his battle against cancer.”

Stewart previously announced he was stepping down as Saskatchewan’s Minister of Agriculture to focus on his battle with cancer.  Stewart will remain as MLA for Lumsden-Morse.

Premier Moe also announced that Lisa Lambert becomes Government Deputy Whip.
