Politics

The riding has been almost exclusively NDP since it was created in 1958, except for a short stint by the Liberals between 1988 and 1990.

Doug Martindale has been the NDP MLA since 1990 and won with more than three times the number of votes as the second place finisher in 2007.

Martindale is not running again but the riding is still considered a relatively safe seat for the NDP.

Only half of registered voters cast a ballot here in 2007.
