There are a lot fewer safe seats for the governing NDP in this election than last time around. Here are a dozen NDP seats in the city that appear vulnerable:

 

Assiniboia

Jim Rondeau won handily last time but is not seeking re-election. Steven Fletcher is running for the PCs.

 

Fort Rouge

No incumbent, with the departure of Jennifer Howard. Wab Kinew’s social media problems make it more likely that Liberal Leader Rana Bokhari will finally win a seat in the legislature.

 

Fort Richmond

Incumbent Kerri-Irvin Ross. With the NDP flagging in the polls, all its seats in south Winnipeg are vulnerable.

 

Kirkfield Park

Health Minister Sharon Blady won by a mere 21 votes last time.

 

Riel

Incumbent Christine Melnick will face a repeat challenge by former Tory staffer Rochelle Squires.

 

Rossmere

Incumbent is Erna Braun. Tories held this riding when they were last in government.

 

St. James

Incumbent Deanne Crothers will be in tough against the Tories here if the Liberal vote improves.

 

St. Norbert

Incumbent Dave Gaudreau won by 31 votes in 2011.

 

St. Vital

With incumbent Nancy Allan not running again, this is a wide-open race.

 

Seine River

Theresa Oswald won this seat from the Tories in 2003. She’s not running this time.

 

Southdale

No incumbent here after Erin Selby resigned last year. Like other south Winnipeg seats, Southdale has been prime PC turf in the past.

 

Tyndall Park

Incumbent Ted Marcelino. This constituency is vulnerable to a steal by the Liberals, who came within 600 votes of victory last time.
