Scott Moe (born c. 1973) is a Canadian provincial politician, who is the 15th and current Premier of Saskatchewan, and a Member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan for the riding of Rosthern-Shellbrook. He served in the executive council of Brad Wall as Minister of Advanced Education from 2014 to 2016 and then as Minister of the Environment from 2016 to 2017, after which he resigned to launch his campaign for the leadership of the Saskatchewan Party.[2]

He was first elected in the 2011 election, and re-elected in the 2016 election[3][4][5] as a Saskatchewan Party MLA. On January 27, 2018, he was elected the new leader of the Saskatchewan Party. He was sworn in as premier on February 2, 2018.

Background

Moe was born on a farm near Shellbrook. He graduated from the University of Saskatchewan, with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. He later worked in various community initiatives in and near Shellbrook, including the Economic Development Corporation, and the Shellbrook and District Physician Recruitment committee, which seeks to attract general practitioners to rural areas of the province which do not have good access to local medical facilities.[2]

Bankruptcy

In the mid-1990s, while still attending university, Moe and his wife sought to establish a farming business, buying equipment and renting land. By the early 2000s, he filed for bankruptcy with $208,500 in assets and $320,900 in liabilities.[6]

Driving Infractions

In 1992, Moe was convicted of drunk driving.[7] In 1997, he caused[dubious ] the death of one person in a highway traffic incident for which he was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention. While alcohol was not a factor, he claims he cannot recall the incident.[8]
