Evan Duncan elected in Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood


Evan Duncan has been elected in Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood.

The CTV News Decision Desk has declared that Evan Duncan has been elected city councillor of Winnipeg's Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood ward.

"It's unbelievable. I'm so happy to know that my community came out and came out in big numbers to support this campaign," Duncan told CTV News shortly after his victory.

"I think having somebody from this community who is going to be working for the community was the point that people really – they stuck to."

Duncan brought in more than half the votes in the ward, with a total of 9,491 votes cast for him. Behind him, former radio broadcaster Hal Anderson turned councillor candidate collected 6,855 votes.

"It's disappointing," Anderson said following his defeat. "But the people of Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood have spoken and I respect that decision and I congratulate Evan Duncan. He will be the new city councillor, I'll be back on the radio."

Among the other candidates, Duncan also beat Steven Minion and Gordon Penner for the ward, which had no incumbent running. Kevin Klein, the former councillor of the ward, left the seat to make a run for mayor.

Duncan said he now plans to meet with his new council colleagues and Winnipeg's new mayor-elect, Scott Gillingham. Top Stories
