A former Manitoba NDP MLA has died.
Conrad Santos served in the Legislature from 1981 to 1988, and again from 1990 to 2007, in the ridings of Burrows, Broadway, and Wellington.
He was the first Filipino Canadian elected in Canada.
Santos was 81.
Conrad Santos was one of the most memorable politicians I ever served with in the Legislature. Condolences on his passing #mbpoli
