Wab Kinew is the Leader of the Manitoba NDP, Leader of the Official Opposition, and the MLA for Fort Rouge. He is a bestselling author, award-winning musician, former journalist and a former administrator with the University of Winnipeg.

As a proud father of three young boys, Wab wants his children to grow up in a progressive province that recognizes the value of all people. He believes all children, no matter their postal code, deserve to have a real shot at success—whether it be enough one-on-one time with their teacher in the classroom, or an opportunity for a fulfilling job they can be proud of.

Wab will continue to fight back against the Pallister government’s cuts to health care, which are making life harder for patients and health care workers. He will also advocate for real action on the climate crisis, so that future generations can enjoy a safe and healthy environment.  

Wab and his wife Dr. Lisa Kinew live with their family in Winnipeg.
