Kenora riding up for grabs

Conservative candidate faces tough fight to hold onto seat

APTN National News
There is a lot of attention being paid to the Kenora riding in this federal election.

The Conservative-held riding is home to 40 First Nation communities and many of them go without clean water to drink.

The race has some high profile candidates running, including the former leader of the provincial NDP and a former Liberal federal Aboriginal Affairs minister.

APTN’s Dennis Ward has a look at this so-called swing riding.
