UCP MLAs to campaign for Andrew Scheer, federal Conservatives outside Alberta UCP MLAs and Premier Jason Kenney are out drumming up support for the federal Conservatives, but some political watchers say it could make for trouble depending on the outcome of the vote.

A number of Alberta UCP MLAs and cabinet ministers have been out campaigning for the federal Tories across Canada.

Point Douglas man frustrated by election signs erroneously placed – twice – on his private property

Point Douglas man frustrated by election signs erroneously placed – twice – on his private property A Point Douglas man says an election sign that was attached to his chain link fence – twice in recent weeks – was put there without his permission, and he's trying to figure out why. Frank Douglas told 680 CJOB he was sitting in the living room of his Burrows Avenue home last week when he saw two children and a woman he believes was their mother on his property. The kids, he said, dropped an NDP pamphlet in his mailbox, while the mother started affixing a sign to his fence.

Incumbents can be toppled, although it's not the norm. And a good May does not necessarily mean Again and again, challengers have taken on champions, only to be swatted down at election time. This horse race storyline echoes a story in The Nation in July 2004 that opined: "John Kerry can win

The 1969 Manitoba general election was held on June 25, 1969 to elect Members of the Legislative Assembly ( MLAs ) of the Canadian province of Manitoba .

Lamoureux previously represented the Burrows riding, but jumped over to Tyndall Park after boundary lines were redrawn in 2018. The changes moved portions of her former riding into the updated Tyndall Park.

Marcelino had represented the riding since 2011, the first year the riding was on the books for a general election.

On Tuesday, he said Lamoureux and her team worked hard and deserved the win.

"I'm more than willing to retire," Marcelino said. "But I'll hold the PC government accountable, even from the outside."

"They are doing something really bad to Winnipeg, and I feel that here," he added, touching his chest.

The riding was a crucial win for the Liberals, one of only three seats the party won in the election. That's down from the four seats the party held following the 2016 election, and not enough to secure it official party status.

Wab Kinew says Manitoba election shows NDP is on the road to recovery

Wab Kinew says Manitoba election shows NDP is on the road to recovery WINNIPEG — Wab Kinew says that despite another majority win by Manitoba's Progressive Conservatives, his New Democrats have increased their roster — a sign they are on the road to recovery after a historic defeat in the 2016 election. "It's with great humility that we accept the results of tonight," Kinew said to cheers from the crowd in his concession speech Tuesday night. "But I don't think we were defeated tonight. I think Manitobans sent a very, very strong message." The mood was sombre for most of the evening in a downtown Winnipeg entertainment centre where NDP supporters gathered to watch the results roll in.

Cliff Graydon, Independent incumbent in Borderland

Cliff Graydon was an incumbent candidate in the riding of Borderland — previously Emerson — but this time around he ran as an Independent.

Graydon was booted from the Progressive Conservative caucus in October 2018 following what media reports on that he had invited two women on separate occasions to sit on his lap, and invited one woman to lick food off his face.

Graydon acknowledged at the time he had an outdated sense of humour and had made inappropriate remarks, but he said he had not sexually harassed anyone and had no memory of inviting anyone to lick his face. He also denied allegations from a longtime party volunteer that he groped and propositioned her in September 2017.

Following his ouster, Graydon initially said he wouldn't seek re-election. But in July, he announced he'd run as an Independent.

On Tuesday, he was beaten out by rookie Josh Guenter, the candidate for his former Progressive Conservative party.

At the time, Bindle beat out NDP incumbent Steve Ashton by a slim margin of 185 votes.

"If you put in the hard work, you await the results in peace," Bindle said after polls closed Tuesday.

"The people have spoken. One thing that I'm happy about is, even though I didn't score a goal, our team won, and won a majority."
