JARED STORY

Longtime Progressive Conservative MLA Heather Stefanson was re-elected in Tuxedo by a large margin.

The race for Fort Garry-Riverview was a close one with PC candidate Jeannette Montufar running a strong campaign in the neighbourhood.

Montufar was able to pull in 3,144 votes but it wasn’t enough, with Allum earning 3,442, a difference of 298.

The Sou’wester was unable to reach Allum by press time.

Green Party leader James Beddome also had a strong showing in Fort-Garry Riverview, coming in third with 1,709 votes.

Voter turnout overall was 70.86 per cent.

In Fort Whyte, Pallister swept the riding earning 6,782 votes or 63 per cent. Overall turnout was 61.65 per cent.

Stefanson was first elected in 2000 and is the deputy leader of the PCs. She earned 4,695 votes or 54.5 per cent. She said she was humbled by the results and PC majority.

"It’s very exciting and it’s been an incredible team effort all the way along under the leadership of Brian Pallister. It’s been a fantastic group to work with and I’m looking forward to serving with many new MLAs," Stefanson said.

Stefanson said she doesn’t know whether she’ll be called for a cabinet position and that her focus remains on representing the constituents of Tuxedo.
