LU Prof weighs in on by-election

A local political science teacher is weighing in on the most recent Federal By-elections. The Conservatives gained two new MPs and the Liberals just one in the Winnipeg North riding. Gary Munro is the Chair of the Political Science Department at Lakehead University and says it's interesting to see Julian Fantino elected. Munro notes Fantino was heavily involved in policing which ties into the Conservative Government's crime platform. Fantino claimed a former Liberal riding, and the Liberals knocked off an NDP incumbent.
