Saskatoon – Rural and Urban Votes in the 2011 Federal Election

August 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

You should refer to this webpage for the data used in this analysis. These maps of federal ridings in all of Saskatchewan and just Saskatoon may also be useful.

Saskatoon-Wanuskewin is the least urban riding at 54%, while the other three city ridings are around 70% urban. The urban areas of Saskatoon-Rosetown-Biggar went heavily NDP. The urban areas of the other three ridings went Conservative by about a 7% margin. However, if you combine the total urban votes in Saskatoon,  the Conservative edge is down to 2.5%. This makes Saskatoon slightly Conservative and Regina a little NDP.

Three Saskatoon urban ridings should average 56.600 voters – about 3,000 more than Regina. In Saskatoon, there is no one riding that could stay more or less intact. However it’s done, one riding will have to straddle the river – I’d create such a riding out of the North end of the city.
