Thanks for this stat - I'll help circulate...
BTW, am i incorrect in assuming the NDP candidate Rebecca Blaikie is the daughter of Bill Blaikie, a veteran NDP Member of Parliament from Winnipeg? She ran as NDP candidate in LaSalle—Émard in Montreal, Quebec. She received 4.97% of the vote share, and was not elected. She did however receive a large amount of press coverage.
NDP supporters in Winnipeg South, NDP projected 8.2% of votes would help Terry Duguid!
Actually,, the NDP candidate is Dave Gaudreau. I am not sure what happened to Rebecca Blaikie, but the change was made recently. As its stands Lib Terry Duguid has the best chance.
Duguid has credentials and experience that far exceed the total experience and credentials of all the other candidates combined.
As an MP Rod Bruinooge has been working to have abortion laws changed,, hard to believe:
Rebecca Blaikie is running in Winnipeg North.
She is the daughter of Big Bill. Big Bill is currently in the tough spot of being the Conservation Minister for the current NDP Manitoba provincial government.
Good article in today's Winnipeg Free Press about this tight race.
