Canada election results: Regina Wascana

View Link »

Conservative candidate Michael Kram is projected to serve a second term representing Regina– Wascana.

The electoral riding of Regina Wascana essentially covers the southeast portion of the Queen City.

The boundaries include all of Regina south of Saskatchewan Drive and east of Albert Street. The riding also includes a portion of the Rurual Municipality of Sherwood, just outside the city limits. The eastern border is the same as the RM’s eastern boundary.

About eight per cent of the riding’s residents identify as Aboriginal. First Nations University of Canada, the only university in North America that is developed in partnership with and controlled by Indigenous Peoples, is in the Regina Wascana riding.

Until 2019, Regina Wascana was Saskatchewan’s lone Liberal stronghold.

Longtime Liberal MP Ralph Goodale, whose most recent cabinet position was public safety minister, had represented the riding from 1993-2019.  He now serves as the Canadian high commissioner to the United Kingdom.

In the last federal election, Conservative candidate Michael Kram defeated Goodale, who sought re-election.
