Dan Mazier, re-elected to his seat, said thank you to Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa on Monday when the results of the vote came in.
“Tonight’s message is loud and clear: Our riding wants a voice in Ottawa that will continue to stand up for rural Canada – and I will do that.”
He said he understands the importance of community and family in rural Canada.
“I have proudly lived and worked in our constituency for my entire life. I understand what it means to be a rural Canadian. And tonight’s local victory is a victory for the farmers, ranchers, and outdoorsmen. It’s a victory for the families and local businesses within our constituency.”
Brandon-Souris constituency re-elected incumbent Larry Maguire. He’s a seasoned politician who can be counted on to deliver the facts and figures on issues in Ottawa.
Calling the recent election a “lacklustre event” he said some good came out of it as, “knocking on doors provides an opportunity to hear what people are thinking.”
He stated that the timing of the election, just two years into Trudeau’s mandate, cost Canadians over $600M and made no sense. Neither the Conservative Party nor the other parties were resisting the government’s work to handle the main issue of the day – the pandemic.
