Winnipeg South (French : Winnipeg-Sud) is a Canadian federal electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1917 to 1979, and since 1988. It covers the southernmost part of the city of Winnipeg.

History

The electoral district was created in 1914 from Winnipeg riding and first contested at the 1917 election.

In 1976, it was abolished when it was redistributed into the ridings of Provencher, Winnipeg—Assiniboine, and Winnipeg—Fort Garry.

In 1987, it was re-created from parts of Winnipeg—Assiniboine and Winnipeg—Fort Garry and has been contested since the 1988 election.

Some observers expected Winnipeg South to be a close race in 2011, [3] though these predictions were later proven wrong. This race was close in 2006, when Conservative challenger Rod Bruinooge defeated four-term Liberal incumbent Reg Alcock by just 111 votes. In 2008, Bruinooge improved his plurality to nearly 6,000 votes. His Liberal challenger was businessperson, party activist, and former Winnipeg City Council member Terry Duguid.

This riding lost territory to Winnipeg South Centre and Saint Boniface—Saint Vital, and gained territory from the latter during the 2012 electoral redistribution. Bruinooge chose not to contest the 2015 election, and Duguid won the seat for the Liberal Party.
