Fielding Won’t Run for Provincial Tory Leadership

Scott Fielding (WINNIPEG.CA)

City councillor Scott Fielding will not seek the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba.

“After careful consideration and discussions with my family I have decided not to put my name forward to seek the leadership of the PC Party,” Fielding said in a release on Thursday. “With 3 young children, including a 5 month old new born, the timing is not right. I want to continue to focus on municipal issues to make the City of Winnipeg a greater place to live, work and play.”

“I want to thank the many individuals who contacted me to provide support and words of encouragement.”

Fielding has been a councillor in the St. James-Brooklands ward since 2006.

Brian Pallister is currently running to replace outgoing PC leader Hugh McFadyen.
