Liberal candidate Ouellette takes Winnipeg Centre from long-time NDP MP

APTN National News
Liberal candidate Robert-Falcon Ouellette snatched the Winnipeg Centre riding from long-time MP Pat Martin Monday evening.

Ouellette caught the red Liberal wave that washed across the country Monday evening giving leader Justin Trudeau a majority government mandate.

Ouellette was in a knife-fight with Martin, who had held the riding since 1997, but in the end won a resounding victory, winning by about 6,000 votes.

Ouellette is seen by many as a rising young Indigenous and now he has a seat in the House of Commons.

    I like Robert-Falcon Ouellette and I voted for him as mayor of Winnipeg but I really wish he’d run and won for the NDP.
