Sarah Pinsent Nominated as NDP Candidate for Interlake-Gimli

First non-incumbent candidate to be nominated for next election

The Manitoba NDP nominated their first non-incumbent candidate today for the next provincial election. Sarah Pinsent, the NDP’s candidate for Interlake-Gimli, was officially nominated at an event Sunday afternoon at the Gimli Recreation Centre.

“I first ran for the NDP in Interlake-Gimli during the 2019 campaign, and I’ve been working hard to win the trust of families here ever since—by fighting PC cuts to health care and seniors care, fighting for good jobs in the Interlake, like commercial fishing, and pushing to protect Lake Winnipeg,” said Pinsent. “I’m running alongside Wab Kinew in the next election because I believe it’s time for a Premier and a government that cares for people and fights to make life better for all of us.”

Sarah Pinsent is a lifelong Interlaker and a graduate of Stonewall Collegiate. She is a trained social worker and clinical therapist who has helped families navigate change and conflict for more than 10 years. She is a committed volunteer in the constituency, working as Chair of the Winnipeg Beach parent advisory council and a member of the Gimli Barvinok Ukrainian Dance Club. She and her husband Chris, along with their four children, live in Winnipeg Beach.

“Sarah Pinsent knows this community—she's grown up here and she’s seen how Pallister-Stefanson cuts have made life harder and more expensive for families, seniors and workers,” said NDP Leader Wab Kinew. “I’m proud to have Sarah on our team for the next election because I know she’s ready to solve problems and help Interlake-Gimli families.”
