Ashton won her seat for the Churchill Keewatinook Aski riding with 50 percent of the vote. She defeated Liberal Judy Klassen, Conservative Cyara Bird, Green Party Ralph McLean and People’s Party of Canada Ken Klyne. Aston says her re-election sends a message to the government about issues pertaining to northern Manitoba. She says they sent a strong message that it is the NDP that fights for us, it fights for us because it speaks to the issues that matter to us, housing, health care, education, roads, infrastructure, support for our young people, support for our teachers and taking on climate change and we need to make sure that the government whatever it looks like acts on the priorities of our north, on the priorities of First Nations, Metis and northern people.
New Democrats won two dozen seats in the House of Commons.
