Dundurn – 2008

Look at the participation rate for the rural voters in this riding:

Urban Rural
Green 1801 (7%) 524 (5%)
Liberal 4518 (16%) 991 (9%)
NDP 7602 (28%) 2274 (21%)
Conservative 13473 (49%) 7274 (66%)
Total 27394 (61%) 11063 (74%)
Eligible 44792 15005

The vote as a graph:

And the map:

This riding is different in a couple of ways. First, there’s a lot of Liberal vote that could put the NDP within shouting distance. It also should be union territory – given all the potash mines. Many of the workers live in the city quadrant.

Finally, Lynne Yelich is a very likable and community minded. The right kind of candidate does make a difference, particularly one who doesn’t go out of their way to alienate people. If they do create a donut rural riding around Saskatoon, I hope Yelich runs.
