WINNIPEG - Voters in Concordia will go to the polls March 2 to replace former premier Gary Doer.

Matthew Wiebe, Doer’s former constituency executive assistant, was chosen as the NDP candidate in November. Social worker Judi Heppner will carry the Liberal banner.  The Progressive Conservatives have yet to select a candidate

There are currently 35 New Democrats, 19 Progressive Conservatives, two Liberals and one vacant seat in the Manitoba legislature.
