"The north would have a voice from someone who has lived in the area their entire life, someone who has experienced the north," Turtle said just as Singh began his speech to concede the 2019 election race to fourth place.

Turtle lost Monday's election too, coming third place in a race that elected Conservative Eric Melillo in Kenora, Ontario and defeated incumbent Liberal Bob Nault.

A long-time advocate for the clean-up of mercury in the English and Wabigoon river systems – which has been impacting and poisoning Grassy Narrows and Wabaseemoong members for generations – Turtle was sad, but not disheartened by his first foray into politics.
