Derek Johnson, Progressive Conservative, Interlake-Gimli

I was born and raised in Oak Point, where my family and I have resided for four generations. Before running for office in the new constituency of Interlake-Gimli I was the MLA for Interlake. I greatly enjoyed my first term as an MLA. I was honoured to be the Legislative Assistant to the Minster of Infrastructure and now proudly serve as the PC Caucus whip. I am looking forward to representing the new constituency of Interlake-Gimli.
