Three Jewish Candidates Elected

Three Jewish candidates were elected to the legislature of Manitoba in the recent elections there. These were Brian Corrin in Winnipeg, of the New Democratic Party (NDP) and Henry Carroll of Brandon, Manitoba, also of the NDP; and Ed Covnatz of Winnipeg of the Conservative Party. The NDP defeated the Conservative Party in the elections.

Saul Miller and Saul Cherniack, Cabinet Ministers in a previous NDP government, had withdrawn from the contest before the election was called. Sydney Green, also a member of an earlier NDP Cabinet, started a new party, the Progressives, which elected no members. Sidney Spivak, a former Conservative leader and Cabinet Minister did not run for re-election.
