Harvey Smith wins in Daniel McIntyre

  • Print

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.

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.
