Saskatoon – Rural and Urban Votes in the 2011 Federal Election
August 22, 2011 § Leave a comment
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.
