Eric Robinson - Kewatinook

1. Why did you decide to run in the 2016 Manitoba election?

Because I feel there is a lot more work to do in regards to Northern and Indigenous Issues.

The rights of Indigenous peoples, ongoing work for supporting victims of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and proper care and respect for our elders.

The diversity and the tenacity of the people that live in Kewatinook and the challenges they face each and everyday. I have and will continue to make a difference.

6. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

Indigenous people must take a more prominent place in the political life of Canada.
