Manitoba Lt. Gov. Filmore set to swear in new Premier this afternoon

Later this afternoon, Manitoba Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon is expected to swear in Manitoba's Premier-Designate Heather Stefanson.


This comes on the heals of Stefanson winning a victory over former MP Shelly Glover at Saturday's PC Leadership Race.


Stefanson was the caucus favourite to take the leadership of the party, defeated Glover by 363 votes. Stefanson is expected to be sworn in this afternoon by Lt. Gov. Fimore.


Since the announcement of the results on Saturday Glover had not conceded defeat to her rival and earlier Monday had asked for an investigation into the results.
