Liberals Nominate Shah Rukh as Saskatoon Fairview Candidate

SASKATOON – The Saskatchewan Liberal Party has officially selected Shah Rukh as the Liberal candidate in the upcoming by-election in Saskatoon Fairview.

A longtime resident of the constituency, Shah Rukh brings with him a strong understanding of community issues and small business experience.

Rukh currently works as Managing Director of SSG Security Services. Before moving to Saskatoon, he resided in Toronto where he attended Centennial College and served as Vice President of the Centennial College Student Association.

“The constituents in Saskatoon Fairview deserve a voice who will focus on important local issues including supporting low and middle income families, strengthening local businesses and improving health services”, said Rukh, “I believe that I can be a voice for positive change, and very much look forward to meeting constituents on the doorsteps and at other events in the community.”

“Local residents are still being hit hard by the damaging spring provincial budget, from the PST increase and added tax on insurance premiums to cuts to important government and social services, we’re all paying the price of the Sask Party government’s financial mismanagement”, said Rukh.

“There’s been plenty of political blaming going around, but I’m more interested in creating solutions, including diversifying and strengthening our provincial economy through strategic investments to open up our province to new markets, supporting green energy entrepreneurship, building meaningful partnerships with indigenous nations, stabilizing funding for post-secondary education, and investing future resource revenues for the benefit of future generations”, concluded Rukh.

Rukh previously ran in the constituency of Saskatoon Fairview in the 2016 provincial election.
