Ten First Nations candidates were elected on October 19. A key victory was Winnipeg Centre's Robert Falcon Ouellette's win over New Democratic Party MP Pat Martin who had represented the riding (electoral district) since 1997. "It's a great day," said a jubilant Grand Chief Derek Nepinak with the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, following the election results. "I feel a lot of relief from the years of very purposeful oppression that was brought forward from the previous government."
