Pregnant woman casts ballot


WINNIPEG—Gillian Taronno wasn’t going to let giving birth to triplets stop her from voting.

She and her husband, Sandy, went to a polling station in the riding of Winnipeg South Centre yesterday morning.

Gillian asked those in line inside Harrow United Church if they could go ahead to vote.

She told them it was because she had to have a C-section at 9 a.m. to deliver her three babies.

People in line replied “yes” in unison and motioned them to move ahead to the front of the line.

Relatives later said Taronno had given birth, and that she and the three baby girls were healthy and doing well.

The names of the babies have yet to be announced but someone on a relative’s Facebook post suggested Justine, Stephanie, and Thomasina.
