Election results[edit]

1988 – present[edit]

Winnipeg South was expected by some to be a close race in 2011,[3] although theses pundits were later proven wrong. This race was very close in 2006, between its Liberal incumbent, Reg Alcock and his challenger, Tory Rod Bruinooge. Bruinooge won by just 111 votes. Bruinooge's victory in 2008 was much more comfortable, having won by nearly 6,000 votes. His challenger was Liberal Party activist and former city councillor Terry Duguid.
