Judy Klassen the MLA for Keewatinook was acclaimed last week as the official candidate for the federal Liberal party in our riding of Churchill Keewatinook Aski. Klassen told the crowd at the nomination meeting she is honored and humbled by their support and will give her service to improving the lives of people in the north.
Klassen will be facing long time NDP incumbent Niki Ashton in the election as well at candidates from the Conservative Party, Green Party and the Peoples Party of Canada. She says the people of the North are at a critical time of much needed investments adding we have already seen the damage of Conservative austerity in the north by Brian Pallister, further austerity under Andrew Sheer and the federal Conservatives would be devastating to northern Manitoba. She adds Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberal party are the only choice to deliver the much needed investment the north needs.
