As Many Liars - The Story of the 1995 Manitoba Vote-Splitting Scandal


Manufacturer: Arbeiter Ring

Product Information

In 1998, Manitoba’s Conservative government was oozing confidence and appeared certain to cruise to reelection under Premier Gary Filmon. But the party had a skeleton in its closet. In the 1995 provincial election, Manitoba Conservatives had financed supposedly independent Aboriginal candidates in an attempt to divert votes away from the New Democratic Party. When a local radio reporter began to investigate persistent rumors about Conservative dirty tricks in the last provincial election, he broke open the scandal that led to a riveting public inquiry, and ultimately to the fall of the government. This lively, readable book tells the story of the lies and fall of Manitoba’s Conservative government, and serves as a reminder that politics is about power and the principles by which a society’s wealth is to be distributed.
