Politics

This riding is only a decade old, having been created to handle the rapid growth and new suburbs in south Winnipeg. It has only voted for the Conservatives in the three elections since it was created.

As the home riding of PC Leader Hugh McFadyen, Fort Whyte is not really on anyone’s radar screen beyond the Tories’. It is one of just four Winnipeg ridings to remain in the Tory camp in the 2007 election, and McFadyen won it handily by more than 2,000 votes.
