Politics

Elmwood in its current form has been a riding since 1958 and has been NDP the entire time.

Currently represented by Bill Blaikie (a longtime federal NDP MP who returned to the province and ran provincially in 2008), the riding technically does not have an incumbent in this election because Blaikie is not running again.

However Jim Maloway, who represented the riding for 22 years before running federally in 2008 is back for another kick at the can. He won the federal election in 2008 but lost the riding last spring.
