Biggar-Sask Valley MLA Randy Weekes is continuing to make headlines out of the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly. Weekes shared his official resignation from the Sask. Party to social media on Monday night , an unsurprising move to many following the end of the most recent sitting.

Weekes' statement confirmed that he will remain in the role of Speaker, and that he will be serving out his term for Biggar-Sask Valley as an Independent member. In addition to the letter, he shared the following comment about Sask. Party leader and Premier Scott Moe.

"I half expected the Premier to remove me from caucus, that does not appear to be on his agenda so I decided that I would make it official today with the submission of my letter of resignation from the Sask. Party government caucus."

The official announcement comes just over a month after Weekes' figuratively "cut ties" with the party by posting a torn up membership card. Back in December Weekes lost the Sask. Party nomination for the new Kindersley-Biggar constituency, that result leading into all of the news that came out during the spring sitting, culminating with Weekes' official exit from the party on Monday.
