Winnipeggers will pay high price for Motkaluk's promised infrastructure, Bowman says

Mayor

There may be seven candidates trying to unseat incumbent mayor Brian Bowman, but history isn’t on their side.

The last time Winnipeg voters tossed out an incumbent mayor was during the 1956 election. That was the year Stephen Juba, a colourful and lovable character from the North End, knocked off George Sharpe to begin a 20-year run in the mayor’s chair.

The Free Press invited all council and mayoral candidates to fill out a questionnaire about themselves, their platforms and what they hope to achieve in office. Read their responses below.
