The PC Party of Manitoba is opening a regional office in Gimli to provide area residents an opportunity to get involved in making a change for the better in our province. This opening comes on the heels of the resignation of the former NDP MLA who suddenly vacated his seat two weeks ago. The NDP continue to refuse to call a by-election and provide the residents of Gimli a democratic voice in the legislature.
“Manitobans are tired of the same broken promises and want a change for the better. The premier continues to refuse to call a by-election and we think that’s unacceptable. We’re opening our office to show how a PC government would represent positive change,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister.
So far there are 42 nominated candidates in the 57 constituencies. Of the 26 new candidates, 11 are women. We are pleased to have individuals such as Jeff Wharton (Gimli), Derek Johnson (Interlake), and David Horbas (Selkirk) wanting to bring positive change in their communities and join MLA’s Ralph Eichler (Lakeside) and Wayne Ewasko (Lac Du Bonnet) in the legislature.
“The new office will provide residents of Gimli and surrounding areas easier access to learn more about the PC Party of Manitoba and provide more direct opportunities to communicate with citizens about their concerns, issues, and ideas to bring positive change to our province,” added Pallister.
The PC Party is continuing to build momentum across Manitoba with more nominations coming in the weeks and months ahead.
Slated to open Wednesday, August 26th, the office will be located at 68-B Center Street in Gimli.
Hours of operation will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am-Noon and 1pm-4pm.
