WINNIPEG - Another Conservative MLA is calling it quits.
Dennis Smook, who represents La Verendrye, says he will not run in the next provincial election which is expected next year.
Smook who was first elected in 2011 plans to retire.
This follows similar announcements from other Tories including Lakeside MLA Ralph Eichler, Midland MLA Blaine Pedersen and Agassiz MLA Eileen Clarke.
In June, Scott Fielding, the MLA for Kirkfield Park, resigned to work for a consulting firm.
