Politics

The home riding of Premier Greg Selinger, St. Boniface is generally considered a safe seat for the NDP right now.

Selinger won here by more than 4,000 votes in 2007, the largest margin of victory for any NDP MLA.

However it has been a swing seat, moving between the NDP and the Liberals in the last 50 years.

The Tories have not won here since 1927. It was one of the only ridings the Tories finished third in during the 2007 election.
