David Marit is Saskatchewan’s new agriculture minister.
Premier Scott Moe made the announcement this afternoon.
Marit, who was president of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities before entering provincial politics in 2016, replaces Lyle Stewart in the ag portfolio.
Stewart recently resigned from cabinet for health reasons.
Today we made some changes to our cabinet with mixed emotions, as we continue to support our friend Lyle Stewart as he battles cancer.

Moe also announced that Lori Carr is the province’s highways and infrastructure minister. She was previously legislative secretary to the finance minister and government deputy whip.
