Cameron Friesen was first elected as the MLA for Morden-Winkler in 2011. Since his election, he has served in the critic portfolios for Education, Health and currently serves as Critic for Finance. Cameron has been a strong voice for Morden-Winkler in the Manitoba Legislature and would be honoured to continue serving his community as MLA.
Cameron was born and raised in Morden. After graduation, he earned degrees in music from the Canadian Mennonite University and the University of British Columbia. Cameron returned to the province and earned his Education degree at the University of Manitoba.
As an educator, Cameron’s teaching career spanned 12 years in the Winnipeg, Hanover and Western School Divisions. A keen interest in politics and a desire to serve the public led him to a position as Executive Assistant for the local Member of Parliament, a position he held until his election to the Manitoba Legislature.
Cameron and Shelley have been married for 23 years and have raised their 3 children in Morden-Winkler. He and his family love southern Manitoba - the people, the family focus, the work ethic, and the commitment to helping others.
Cameron strongly believes that a new approach is desperately needed to put Manitoba on a path to recovery after 17 years of NDP government. A better plan is needed to address declining achievement of Manitoba students in reading, math, and science, to accelerate personal care home construction so seniors can stay in their communities, and to improve the way government partners with communities like Morden and Winkler that contribute significantly to Manitoba’s economy.
Cameron is proud to be a part of Brian Pallister’s Progressive Conservative Team and is working hard to bring a better plan and a better future to Manitoba.
