Manitobans re-elected the NDP government in Tuesday’s provincial election.

The party brought in four Aboriginal candidates. One of them was elected in Winnipeg’s north-end riding of Point Douglas which is an area that is heavily Aboriginal.

APTN National News reporter Tiar Wilson visited the riding ahead of the vote and found a community beginning to wake up politically.

Wilson visited the community again, for post-election reaction.
