Harvey Smith wins in Daniel McIntyre

Hey there, time traveller!

Incumbent Harvey Smith lost the NDP endorsement but won another term as councillor in Daniel McIntyre tonight.

"It’s always great to win," the 73-year-old said. The ward had five strong candidates vying for the seat, some backed by the city’s most experienced political operatives.

Harvey Smith and Cindy Gilroy-Price earlier this evening.

Smith’s Liberal-backed opponent, school trustee Cindy Gilroy-Price, showed up at his Sargent Avenue campaign office just before 9 p.m. to congratulate him. She is the former co-chair of the left-leaning Winnipeg Citizens Coalition that was founded in part to avoid diluting the left’s influence in civic politics. In early results, she looked like the second-place finisher.

Keith Bellamy, who wrestled the NDP endorsement away from the 18-year incumbent, came third. Lito Taruc was the only centre-right candidate. The popular Tagalog-language radio show host took some flak for living in Tuxedo instead of the inner-city ward and not showing up at all-candidates debates, and finished fourth.

John Cardoso, a self-described centre-left candidate,was counting on the support of the West End’s strong Portuguese and Italian communities. He finished a distant fifth.
