WATCH: Manitoba Election: NDP’s Wab Kinew concedes defeat “I think Manitobans sent a very, very strong message, and the seats that we took back made it very clear that Manitobans want us, the New Democrats, to not only be the conscience of Manitoba, not only to be the opposition of Manitoba, but to be the progressive voice for Manitoba.” And the jab from Kinew “a few minutes ago I called Brian Pallister…it was a local call.” #mbpoli — Lauren McNabb (@McNabbonGlobal) September 11, 2019 Meanwhile, the Wolseley riding went to the NDP once again. Despite hopes by Green Party supporters that it might be their first-ever win, Green candidate David Nickarz was defeated by the NDP’s Lisa Naylor.

However, the Liberals lost official party status, losing a seat in northern Manitoba. Gerrard has represented the area since 1999 and is the former leader of the Manitoba Liberals. “It’s just great to be re-elected. It’s phenomenal to be a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba and to be able to make a contribution,” he said. “This is 20 years, and this will be the sixth election that I’ve won, so I’m really thankful to the voters in River Heights.” WATCH: Manitoba Election: NDP happy with results Former Progressive Conservative MLA Cliff Graydon was defeated in the new Borderland riding. Graydon was running as an independent candidate in this election, after being expelled from the PC caucus after allegations of sexual harassment. He was defeated in 2019 by PC candidate Josh Guenter. Just spoke with @PC_Manitoba Joshua Guenter who was elected in Borderlands tonight. At just 25 years old, the newly elected MLA says he wants to focus on affordability for Manitobans — Brittany Greenslade (@BrittAtGlobal) September 11, 2019 The new riding of Union Station has elected its first MLA – NDP candidate Uzoma Asagwara. It was created from the riding formerly known as Logan. Asagwara makes history as the province’s first black MLA ever elected.

Ugh So did my dog.... I just got back from Manitoba and judging by their roads, crosswalks, and bike lanes I’m pretty sure all these guys in this video are crooks Lmao, I love that he highjacked that word from the corruptocrat federal Liberals. Surely a bit of a troll. What is a Progressive Conservative? It sounds like an oxymoron.

Soon to regret!

Progressive Conservatives seek second mandate as voters head to the polls in ManitobaBrian Pallister won 40 of 57 seats, the largest majority government in Manitoba in a century, in 2016 after the former NDP government raised the provincial sales tax and angered voters

Election day: Manitoba Tories seek 2nd mandate with promise of tax and cost cutsBrian Pallister is seeking a second mandate for his Progressive Conservatives in the Manitoba election today with a to-do list that includes further cost cuts and reduced taxes. Please Manitoba, kick them to the curb. Costa Rica having an election today? Let me guess, Mennonites swung the vote because PC’s argued that liberals would tax schmauntfett and take their Verenicki.

Pallister’s PCs re-elected with majority in Manitoba, solidifying bloc of conservative premiers opposing TrudeauThe PCs won the vote after a campaign in which Pallister pledged to relax the tight control he has exercised on the provincial budget since being elected Premier in 2016 Weakening our chances of avoiding catastrophic climate change. Manitoba keeps its sanity.
