Southern Manitoba is a political battleground. For decades, the southern half of the province has remained a conservative stronghold with little movement by the other political parties.
After a major upheaval in last year’s federal election, many candidates feel like this year could be their chance to make a major political move.
Agriculture is a driving economic force for the area, and many MLA candidates are plying their experience in the fields as a strong case for a new political movement.
