SaskCanola Election and Electronic Voting

The six nominees include Keith Fournier from Lone Rock/Maidstone, Gerry Hertz from Edenwold, Kyle Korneychuk from Pelly, Patricia Lung from Humboldt, Wayne Truman from Redvers, and Doyle Wiebe from Langham. Profiles for each candidate can be found at All election candidates will also be featured on SaskCanola’s monthly radio program in November to discuss their priorities for the canola industry.

Registered producers* will receive a web-based election letter that will instruct them how to select their Board choices from the nominated candidates in the online voting platform. There will be an option listed in the letter for registered producers who wish to vote by paper ballot.
