In 2009 Saskatchewan continued to enjoy a modicum of economic and population growth. This year the province had the good fortune of avoiding a major outbreak of the swine flu, partly as a result of a province-wide immunization program.

"Tell me," I asked, "how you can change your government?" "But, we don't want to change our government," the official replied.

BY-ELECTIONS / 167 conducted by Probe Research, which revealed that 72 per cent of Win- nipeggers approved of Premier Doer’s performance, compared to only 34 per cent who said the same about PC leader Hugh McFadyen and 40 per cent for the Liberals’ Jon Gerrard (Probe Research news release, 5 Apr.). With the NDP’s hold on the city described as “Fortress Winni- peg,” the opposition parties could only hope that the long-serving pre- mier would soon be departing to other pastures.

But I had over 5,000 more votes than in 1957 - in all 75 per cent of the votes cast. Whatever my position in the party generally, I was sure of a solid base in my own constituency.
