Questionnaire Response

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.

2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as MLA?

I have over 20 years of experience as a legislator and a lifetime of experience advocating for Indigenous people to take their rightful place in Canadian society as equals.

3. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our province? In your electoral division?

Having the same standard of living for Indigenous people as equal to the quality of life that the rest of Canadians take for granted. Some examples that are missing from many communities in my constituency are: running water, all weather roads, proper housing and access to health care.

4. What key issue(s) / topic(s) would like to stand for in your role as MLA, and why is it important to you?

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.

5. What is one thing in particular that you value about the electoral division that you wish to represent?

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.
