About the Candidate

WINDOG considers Nancy Cooke to be 'dog-unfriendly'. She did not wish to share her views on off-leash dog parks with voters.

Platform: Cook’s priorities are improving access to public transit, bolstering local businesses and community development. She pledges to work with stakeholders to create a transit accessibility and safety plan. She will work with public officials, businesses, and citizens to sensibly reduce obstacles facing local business owners and will look at ways to support businesses through measures such tax incentives and grants. Cooke will advocate for close oversight of spending on roads and transportation infrastructure, as well as community indoor and outdoor recreation spaces, and access to key services and areas.

Cooke earned a Bachelor of Medical Rehabilitation degree at the University of Manitoba. Her first career was as an occupational therapist. She is the managing partner of Elm Park Dental, her husband’s practice.

The first-time candidate has taken a leave of absence from her position as special assistant to the Minister of Infrastructure. Cooke was a campaign director for the provincial Progressive Conservatives in 2015.
