Politics

Kildonan has been held by the NDP for all but six years since the riding was created in 1958.

Dave Chomiak, a popular cabinet minister, has been the NDP MLA since 1990 is one of the longest sitting MLAs in the legislature now. He is running again in 2011.

A combination of his personal popularity and the NDP brand’s popularity in this riding serve to keep this riding off the target lists of either the Tories or the Liberals.
