Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Cameron Friesen as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of Morden-Winkler.
“Cameron has been a tremendous representative for his constituents in Morden-Winkler,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His steady record of public service make him the best choice to represent the new constituency of Morden-Winkler. I look forward to working with him as we build a winning team that will continue to earn the trust of Manitobans in the next provincial election.”
Cameron Friesen has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Morden-Winkler since 2011. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as Minister of Health, Seniors, and Active Living. From 2016 to 2018, he was Minister of Finance. Cameron loves Manitoba – the people, the history, the family focus, the work ethic, and the commitment to helping others. Cameron and his wife Shelley have two daughters and a son and continue to call the City of Morden home.
In preparation for the next provincial election, the PC Party of Manitoba has begun the process of nominating candidates across the province. The December 2018 report of the independent Electoral Divisions Boundaries Commission made significant changes to the existing electoral boundaries. As a result, founding meetings for new or redrawn constituencies may be required prior to or in conjunction with the nomination meetings. We look forward to building a winning team that reflects the values of Manitobans and our vision for a stronger, more prosperous Manitoba. Additional founding and nomination meetings will be held in the coming weeks.
