Regional profile

The city of Winnipeg is a mixed bag where all three major parties hold seats. The north end of Winnipeg is a very political left-leaning area which has some of the strongest New Democratic Party support in all of Canada. The south end (with many Jewish and Franco-Manitoban voters) is one of the few areas in the Prairies where the Liberals have been successful in recent years. The outer suburban areas tilt rightward, but this was obscured for most of the 1990s by massive vote-splitting.

The end of vote-splitting on the right allowed the Conservatives to win two seats in 2004, in one case defeating a star candidate. The Conservatives picked up another seat in 2006, one more in 2008 and two additional seats in 2011--including the former seat of longtime NDP MP and former deputy leader Bill Blaikie. In 2015, however, the Liberals took all but one seat in Winnipeg en route to their second-largest seat count ever. The only seat that didn't get swept up in the Liberal tide was Blaikie's old seat of Elmwood-Transcona, which was narrowly retaken by the NDP.
