More Winnipeg seats winnable for the NDP next election

308 has obtained a "sub-regional breakdown" from Environics, at last providing answers. Saskatchewan is indeed dark blue country, but the NDP is competitive with the CONS here.
Manitoba federal NDP support, outside of the Northern Churchill riding, is likely concentrated in the city of Winnipeg. This means that a few seats, like Elmwood-Transcona or maybe even Saint Boniface, could swing orange next election. This means that Manitoba, while not seat rich, could be the site of some intense campaigning given it's "battleground" status.
Look forward to leaflets, ads, and photo-ops, because Winnipeggers will be of interest to campaign tacticians.
