Peter W. Prebble is a Canadian provincial politician. He was a New Democratic Party member of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan, representing the constituencies of Saskatoon Sutherland from 1978 to 1982, Saskatoon University from 1986 to 1991 and Saskatoon Greystone from 1999 to 2007.[2]

Prebble was born in Essex, England, the son of Reginald Allen Prebble.[1]

He was first elected in the 1978 provincial election in Saskatoon Sutherland. In the 1982 election he ran for re-election in the neighbouring district of Saskatoon University, but was defeated by Rick Folk of the Progressive Conservatives. He ran again in the 1986 election, defeating Folk. After that riding was dissolved in the 1991 election, Prebble ran in the new district of Saskatoon Greystone that year, but was defeated by Liberal Party leader Lynda Haverstock.

He did not run in the 1995 election. Following Haverstock's retirement, however, Prebble was re-elected in the 1999 election and served the district for two terms until retiring in the 2007 election. He came out of retirement to run in Saskatoon Greystone again in the 2011 election, but was defeated by the incumbent Rob Norris.[3]
