WINNIPEG — NDP MLA Andrew Swan is the big winner of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ latest 50/50 draw.
The former justice minister picked up his cheque for $163,003 at the Bomber Store from the October 24 game.
The winner of the previous raffle for the October 3 game was found to be ineligible to participate, therefore the Bombers held the prize over until last week.
Swan was one of the “rebel five” MLAs who publicly questioned Premier Greg Selinger’s leadership ability last November following public approval ratings.
His winning number was M-280788.
WINNER of BIGGEST 50/50 draw in #Bombers history? Minto MLA Andrew Swan. Some of what he's doing: give to church, buy a new toilet #mbpoli
