Manitoba Liberals not running candidate in Thompson by-election, urges PCs to do the same

A statement from the Manitoba Liberals explains the party will be standing down in the upcoming Thompson by-election.

 

Leader Dougald Lamont says Danielle Adams, the former NDP MLA who died in a vehicle collision last month, would have held her seat until the next general election in 2023.

 

Lamont states given the tragic circumstances of Adam’ passing, the party believes this is “the right and honourable thing to do”.

 

He goes on to encourage the Progressive Conservatives to consider doing the same.

 

Thompson is one of two constituencies pending a by-election, the other being Fort Whyte in Winnipeg which was left vacant after former Premier Brian Pallister resigned last year.

 

A date for the by-election has yet to be announced.
