Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Myrna Driedger as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of Roblin.
“Myrna has been a great representative for her constituents in Charleswood,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “Her exemplary record of public service makes her the best choice to represent the new constituency of Roblin. I look forward to working with her as we build a winning team that will continue to earn the trust of Manitobans in the next provincial election.”
Myrna Driedger has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Charleswood since the 1998 by-election and successfully re-elected in subsequent general elections. In addition to her role as an MLA, she currently serves as Speaker of the Legislature. Prior to her election as an MLA, Myrna was a registered nurse for over two decades. She and her husband live and have raised their family in Charleswood.
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.
