Half the adult working-age population has only a high school diploma or less.

Politics

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.

 

2007 results

Andrew Swan, NDP 3,355

Wayne Helgason, LIB 1,158

Kenny Daodu, PC 658

Cheryl-Anne E. Carr, Communist, 102

Turnout: 50.38 per cent
