Times Colonist - - Canada/World -

MOOSE JAW, Sask. — Saskatchewan’s NDP said it’s mov­ing up the date for its lead­er­ship con­ven­tion.

The NDP said in a state­ment its pro­vin­cial coun­cil de­cided dur­ing a meet­ing in Moose Jaw that the con­ven­tion — which was planned for May 6 — will now hap­pen March 3.

Party pres­i­dent David McGrane ear­lier said there should be a dis­cus­sion of chang­ing the date in light of Pre­mier Brad Wall’s an­nounce­ment this sum­mer that he plans to re­sign.

Wall said he will step down as soon as a new party leader is cho­sen in Saska­toon on Jan. 27.
