Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Ron Evans as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of The Pas-Kameesak.
“Ron has great connections with, and commitment to, his local community,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His record of community service makes him the best choice to represent the new constituency of The Pas-Kameesak. 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.”
Ron, a former Chief of the Norway House Cree Nation and past Grand Chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, is a leading figure in the Aboriginal community in Northern Manitoba. He has worked alongside many stakeholders by providing advice to provincial and federal governments on matters related to First Nation issues such as economic development, mining, fisheries, health and social justice. In addition to his political involvement, Ron is also an ordained priest in the Anglican Church.
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.
