TGCTS continues a series of interviews with candidates in the 2023 Manitoba election. Our first of Season 3 is a chat with Obby Khan, who held the Fort Whyte seat for the governing PC’s in a 2021 byelection and eyes a return to the Legislature.
Marty Gold talks with Khan about his background in the CFL, in business and with public safety, and about his stint as a Cabinet minister in the Stefanson administration
“I’m a community guy, bringing people together”.
At the door, he says the themes are consistent around the province- affordability and growing the economy to pay for a long-decaying health care system.

He touches on some of the Progressive Conservative campaign promises for seniors and to take on criminal violence.
“When you have kids going downtown and they’re getting stabbed or mugged because someone wants to steal their shoes, this is a major problem.”
“We are actively working to reduce crime in the city,’ Khan insists, and a re-elected PC government would continue to demand reforms to toughen bail conditions for repeat offenders. He draws a clear distinction between the ‘defund the police’ position of some NDP candidates with the Tories support for law enforcement officers.
