Understanding the Manitoba Election 2019

Campaigns, Participation, and Issues

Royce Koop (Editor), Barry Ferguson (Editor), Karine Levasseur (Editor), Andrea Rounce (Editor), Kiera L. Ladner (Editor)

Understanding the Manitoba Election 2019 offers an early analysis of the campaign and insights into the decision that Manitoba voters made on September 10, 2019.

This open-access publication features contributions from a team of experts who followed the campaign and contribute not just to a post-election review, but also to the major discussions that will permeate provincial life over the next four years.

The thirteen chapters included here examine critical pieces of the election and how Manitobans understand and experience democracy in 2019—the activities and performance of the three main political parties; analysis of participants outside political parties in the 2019 election, including pollsters, unions, and the disability community; representation and diversity; the campaign itself, including turnout, campaigning, and voting; and key public policy issues, including health, poverty, and the impact of balanced budget legislation and rhetoric.

Published in association with the University of Manitoba’s Duff Roblin Chair in Government.
