Liberals: Writer was never a Grit riding president

Re: Liberals Should Know Better, Marcel Head, April 3.

Many elements of Marcel Head's oped article could be disputed, debated and revisited; this however is not the place for such an exercise. What must be immediately clarified is this individual's role within the Liberal Party of Canada.

Simply stated, Mr. Head is not, nor has he ever been, the riding association president for Desnethe-Missinippi-Churchill River constituency. Any statement to the contrary -- including that claim in this column's opening sentence -- is misleading and untrue.

The Saskatchewan Liberal Election Readiness Committee, along with the Desnethe-Missinippi-Churchill River riding association, lead by its duly elected president, Cheryl Maurice, are currently guiding the party through a new nomination process. Given that Mr. Head has no official role within the party, he will have no official role in this process.

Frank Proto, president, Saskatchewan Liberal Association; Senator Marie-P. (Charette) Poulin, president, Liberal Party of Canada, Ottawa.
