A relatively new riding created in 1999 from parts of St. James and Wellington, Minto has been exclusively won by the NDP.
Justice Minister Andrew Swan, a potential future leader for the party provincially (he initially ran in 2009 for the leadership but stepped out of the race before the end), won easily in 2007 despite a hard push by the Liberals.
Turnout was a relatively paltry 50.38 per cent.
