Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Wayne Ewasko as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of Lac du Bonnet.
“Wayne has been a tremendous representative for his constituents in Lac du Bonnet,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His record of public service make him the best choice to represent the new constituency of Lac du Bonnet. 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.”
Wayne Ewasko has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Lac du Bonnet since 2011. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as chair of the Manitoba PC Caucus. Prior to his role as an MLA, Wayne was a teacher and guidance counsellor in the Sunrise School Division. He received the Teacher of Distinction Award from Brandon University in 2008 and, in 2012, was presented the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Wayne grew up on a farm in the Brokenhead area southwest of Beausejour. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Tracey and together they have two wonderful sons, Brayden and Jarvis. He is an active member of the community as a volunteer with the Beausejour Knights of Columbus and the Beausejour Lions Club.
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.
