Election Day, October 22nd, is fast approaching in Winnipeg. Seven candidates vie for the prize, including Robert-Falcon Ouellette, who won j5mc’s take on the Winnipeg Free Press candidate matcher. The race has been particularly dogged by partisanship, or allegations thereof, between the NDP’s Judy Wasylycia-Leis and the PC’s Brian Bowman. Polls indicate that Judy is the favourite to win, with the closest challenger needing to capture the whole of a 10-point pivot.
Advance polls have been open since the 29th, so it should be easier for voters to cast their ballots when they’ve found their match. Here’s hoping for a good turnout and good public policy!
