Niki Ashton is a veteran MP — and also the youth candidate

August 2, 2017

For Niki Ashton, politics is, in many respects, her family’s business. Her father, Steve Ashton, has been an NDP member of the Manitoba Legislature since 1981, and held numerous senior cabinet positions in the Doer and Selinger NDP governments.

“My dad got elected off the picket line in 1981,” she recounts, but hastens to add that her mom, Hariklia Dimitrakopoulou, is also a political person: “She was a feminist activist involved with the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, and did school board politics, as well.”
