Politics

Transcona has been a riding for more than 50 years and has been held by the NDP for all but two of them. Daryl Reid has held the seat for the NDP since 1990. Perhaps throwing some interesting wrenches out however is the fact the federal riding including Transcona voted for the federal Conservatives in May, the first time that riding had not voted for an NDP MP. Whether that translates to improved support for the provincial Tories is not yet known. Reid had a large margin of victory, more than 3,000 votes, in 2007. Turnout here was really low in 2007 at less than 50 per cent.

Daryl Reid, NDP 4,560

Turnout: 48.75 per cent
