Manitoba Council of Canadian Filipino Association (MaCCFA) has arrived to uniting the various associations in Winnipeg during the inauguration and oath taking of the officers and its board of directors at the Philippine Canadian Centre of Manitoba recently. Google is your friend! Took a few seconds to find information about the new candidate for the Conservatives for Winnipeg North.

The Liberals were able to coast to victory in 2000 with the support of two key groups: visible minorities and Catholics. By 2008, the Liberals could no longer count on their loyalty. The visible minority vote dropped 14 points between 2000 and 2004 (see Figure 2).3 The main beneficiary was the NDP. The Liberals did not lose any further ground in 2006, but in 2008, they lost a massive 19 points. And now it was the Conservatives who benefited. In fact, minority voters were almost as likely to vote Conservative in 2008 as they were to vote Liberal.
Best of luck Julie, Winnipeg could use some more Conservative Blue!
