Kevin Chief Seeking NDP Nomination in Winnipeg North

The provincial NDP will nominate a candidate to replace Judy Wasylycia-Leis in the Winnipeg North ward tonight.

Wasylycia-Leis resigned her seat in April to seek the position of Winnipeg’s next mayor.

Kevin Chief is the only candidate seeking the nomination and has a wide-reaching community background. Chief is the coordinator of the Innovative Learning Centre at the University of Winnipeg and Executive Director of the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre.

The nomination will take place at 7 p.m. at R.B. Russell Vocational High School, 364 Dufferin Ave.
