The campaign for the Manitoba provincial election is in full swing with a little more than two weeks before election day on October 3.

PC leader Heather Stefanson visited Lt. General Anita Neville on September 5, marking the dissolution of the House and the official beginning of the election period.

At dissolution, the governing Progressive Conservatives held 35 of the 57 seats in Manitoba’s Legislature. The NDP had 18, the Liberals held three and one seat was vacant.

Six Filipino Canadians have put their names in the hat. Two of them are running for re-election while the other four are looking to join provincial politics for the first time.
