The Manitoba Liberals will run lawyer Loren Braul in the constituency of Emerson.
Braul lives in the community with his wife and son in Altbergthal and practices law in the area.
“Loren Braul is a leader in his community and will make a fabulous addition to our team of candidates,” Liberal leader Rana Bokhari said.
“When we can attract someone of Loren’s quality in rural Manitoba we must be doing something right.”
Manitoba voters head to the polls April 19.
