Don't Quit Your Day Job

Winnipeg breaks the anti-incumbency craze sweeping the nation, returning Sam Katz to office, despite the fact that he kicks children in the face. Going down in defeat is former NDP MP Judy Wasylycia-Leis.

Elsewhere in Manitoba, former Reform/CA/DRC/PC/CPC MP Inky Mark loses by 36 votes in Dauphin.

This leaves Maurizio Bevilacqua the only winner among the three MPs who jumped to municipal politics this fall.

UPDATE: I should add that former Liberal MPs Ken Boshcoff and Joe Fontana won their races on Monday. Though for Boshcoff (defeated in 2008), it was only for a council spot and for Fontana, it was his second attempt at the top job since resigning in 2006.

  • Wasn't Inky supposed to take that one easy? Perhaps an anti-Conservative wave starting up in Manitoba?

  • Anti-incumbency craze?

    Every single Calgary dingbat alderman was re-elected, including Druh Ferrell.

    In fact, the only one who lost his job was the blinky-eyed guy who was trying to stop them!

  • RV - Linda-Fox Mellway went down in a bad way.

    Plus Ontario saw a slew of incumbent mayors go down. And you had the NB election.

    Still too early to draw a firm conclusion, but it does seem that the mood of Canadians is tilting in that direction.
