It was a busy day on the first day back of the spring session.

Don McMorris made a return to the government caucus. He had stepped away from the caucus, and as his roles as a cabinet minister and deputy premier, following a DUI conviction last summer. 

The Saskatchewan Party caucus voted in favour at its scheduled Monday morning meeting.

McMorris had previously said he would return only when the caucus asked him to, but he made the request in writing to the government caucus chair. 


MLA Ryan Meili was sworn-in during the initial proceedings at the legislature.

He won for the NDP in the recent Saskatoon Meewasin byelection.   

Meili is seen as a top contender for the party leadership.

He ran twice before receiving just under half of the vote.
