A new director will take a seat at the SaskCanola board of directors table.

Katelyn Duncan from Regina received the most votes in the recent election.

Duncan operates a grain farm in the Regina area with her family. She currently serves as the Saskatchewan/Manitoba representative on the Canadian Young Farmer Forum and is a director for her local Conservation and Development Area Authority.

Returning to serve a second term are Lane Stockbrugger from Engelfeld, Bernie McClean of Glaslyn and Charlene Bradley of Stranraer.

There was a good deal of interest in this election. SaskCanola reports there was a 35 per cent increase in voter participation compared to the 2016 director election. 

The directors’ terms will start following the SaskCanola Annual General Meeting Monday, Jan. 14 at TCU Place in Saskatoon. Each candidate will serve a four-year term.

They will be joining current directors Keith Fournier of Lone Rock, Gerry Hertz of Edenwold, Wayne Truman of Redvers, and Doyle Wiebe of Langham.

The next SaskCanola election will be in the fall of 2020.
