Saskatoon—Humboldt is a federal electoral district in Saskatchewan, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1968 to 1979, and since 1988.

Geography[edit]

The riding consists of the northeastern quadrant of Saskatoon and the city of Humboldt and the rural towns of Naicam, Wakaw and Watson. The riding extends to Quill Lake in the east, Pleasantdale in the northeast and St. Louis in the north.

History[edit]

This electoral district was first created in 1966 from Humboldt—Melfort, Rosthern (electoral district) and Saskatoon ridings.

Political geography[edit]

Once a safe Liberal seat, the NDP took over the new creation in 1988. The Liberals stole it back in 1993, but the Reform party and its successor the Canadian Alliance took it over with a strong win in 2000. However, the riding remains split three ways to this day between the Liberals, the new Conservative Party and the NDP. In 2004, with the incumbent, Jim Pankiw running as an independent on the ticket made for the closest four-way race in the country with the winning party receiving just 26.7% of the vote just 4.5 points ahead of the fourth place finisher.

Current Member of Parliament[edit]

Its Member of Parliament is Brad Trost, a former geophysicist and farmer. He was first elected in 2004. He is a member of the Conservative Party of Canada. In the last parliamentary session he served as a member of the 'Standing Committee on Industry, Natural Resources, Science and Technology'.
