Winnipeggers weigh in—does social media matter?

The ghosts of Tweets past have come back to haunt some of the candidates in Manitoba’s provincial election.

Former Liberal candidate Jamie Hall and NDP candidate Wab Kinew have both come under fire for past tweets, resulting in Hall’s resignation and NDP leader Greg Selinger coming to Kinew’s defence.

Ligia Braidotti and Jason Dueck hit the streets to ask Winnipeggers—do you care what candidates in the election post on their social media?


“Some people mistake social media as a private conversation…some people don’t realize people actually listen to it.”

-Chris Pointon





“People do make mistakes, and I’m sure they regret what they said, but I don’t really feel sorry for them. Those comments weren’t recently made. Maybe there should be time frames set up.”

-Doreen Sanderson, 60


-Adam Smith
