“Our provincial legislature is full of establishment politicians who have become way too cozy and comfortable and have failed to defend and protect the values of the people of Saskatchewan. We desperately need change and leaders with the courage to stand up to Ottawa and the globalist policies which will hurt people in this province,” said Friesen.

“We built this province on fundamental values, Christian values of freedom, liberty, justice, equality under the law, prosperity and truth. It’s way past time that we start defending and protecting those values.”
