Lisa Naylor hung on against another valiant effort by Green Party candidate David Nickarz to hold the Wolseley seat for the NDP.

The Winnipeg School Division trustee and counsellor and health educator at Women’s Health Clinic, who championed breakthough inclusion policy at Winnipeg’s largest school division, ran a strong local campaign. 

"I’m glad the election is over because I’m really ready to get in there and start to work on the issues like health care and education," Naylor said at her Portage Avenue campaign office. 

She congratulated Nickarz on his strong showing and said the NDP is concerned about similar issues. 

She said "I think the NDP has an incredible climate change platform. There are a lot of environmental activists among the NDP." 

Nickarz who ran a dogged campaign said that despite not winning the Green Party will still get their message out about climate change action.

"If we don’t change... we’re leaving our children and grandchildren with a world they may not be able to survive in. It’s something I will be hammering home" despite not getting elected.
