Liberals nominate Grey Cup-winning ex-Bomber to run in Fort Whyte riding vacated by Brian Pallister
The Manitoba Liberals hope their candidate for Fort Whyte can intercept the seat recently vacated by former premier Brian Pallister.
Former professional football player Willard Reaves, who won the Grey Cup with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1984, will be the nominee when a byelection is called in the constituency.
