Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Doer worked as a Deputy Superintendent at the Vaughan Street Detention Centre, and was president of the Manitoba Government Employees Union for seven years. In 1984, he was openly critical of the record of Canadian Labour Congress leader Dennis McDermott.[1] Motto: Template:Unhide = Unum Cum Virtute Multorum (One With the Strength of Many) Location City Information Established: 1738 (Fort Rouge), 1873 (City of Winnipeg) Area: 465. ...

Doer was first elected to the Manitoba legislature in 1986, for the north Winnipeg riding of Concordia. He joined the government of Premier Howard Pawley on April 17, 1986, serving as Minister of Urban Affairs. Subsequently, he was given the additional portfolios of Minister of Crown Investments and Minister of the Manitoba Telephone System (February 4, 1987), Minister responsible for the Accountability of Crown Corporations (August 19, 1987), and Minister responsible for the Liquor Control Act (September 21, 1987). 1986 (MCMLXXXVI) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Pawley's government was sustained by a bare majority in the house , and was defeated on March 8, 1988 when disgruntled NDP backbencher Jim Walding voted with the opposition on a motion of non-confidence. Pawley resigned as NDP leader the next day, and set the date for a general election.

A motion of no confidence, also called a motion of non-confidence, a censure motion, a no-confidence motion, or simply a confidence motion, is a parliamentary motion traditionally put before a parliament by the opposition in the hope of defeating or embarrassing a government. ...


The New Democratic Party's convention to determine a successor for Pawley was scheduled for March 30, in the middle of the campaign. Doer, supported by the party establishment and organized labour, narrowly defeated Len Harapiak to become the party's new leader. (See New Democratic Party of Manitoba leadership conventions.) March 30 is the 89th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (90th in leap years). ... Len Harapiak (July 4, 1942-) is a Manitoba politician. ... There have been five New Democratic Party of Manitoba leadership conventions to select a party leader since the Manitoba NDPs founding in 1961. ...


Doer became leader of the Manitoba NDP at a time when the party was experiencing record levels of unpopularity. The Pawley government had increased auto insurance premiums very significantly, and Doer later claimed that the party had fallen to 6% support in its internal polling. This may have been an exaggeration, but the NDP's unpopularity at the time was genuine, and was recognized by the party leadership. It was partly for this reason that Doer did not swear himself in as premier, seeking to distance himself from the outgoing Pawley government.


The NDP won 12 seats (out of 57) in the 1988 election. Progressive Conservative leader Gary Filmon was able to form a minority government, with the Liberals under Sharon Carstairs as the official opposition. Gary Doer, re-elected in Concordia by a reduced margin, was not personally blamed for the loss and remained as party leader. The election of May 9, 1988 in Manitoba, Canada resulted in a hung parliament. ... The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is a right-of-centre political party in Manitoba, Canada. ... The Honourable Gary Albert Filmon, PC, P.Eng. ... The Manitoba Liberal Party is a political party in Manitoba, Canada. ... The Honourable Senator Sharon Carstairs, PC (born April 26, 1942) is a Canadian politician. ...


Filmon's government called another election in 1990. They won a majority, but Doer's New Democrats recovered their standing to 20 seats and replaced the Liberals as the official opposition. The NDP further increased its standing to 23 seats in the 1995 election, and might have won the election had it not been for the unpopularity of Bob Rae's NDP government in neighbouring Ontario. The election of September 11, 1990 in Manitoba, Canada was won by the Progressive Conservatives, who took 30 out of 57 seats. ...

In the 1999 election, the previously moderate Filmon government indicated that it would take a right-wing policy turn if elected to a fourth mandate. This announcement was greeted with suspicion by many Manitoba voters, and allowed Doer (himself running as a moderate) to present his party as a safe alternative. In a campaign that was considered "too close to call" until polling day, the NDP won 32 seats against 24 for the Tories and 1 for the Liberals. More than eleven years after first declining the option, Doer was sworn in a Premier on October 5, 1999. The election of September 21, 1999 in Manitoba, Canada returned to power the New Democratic Party (NDP), which had been out of power since 1988. ... A premier is an executive official of government. ... October 5 is the 278th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (279th in leap years). ... 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...


Doer's government has been moderate and pragmatic in tone, and free of the more dramatic sort of reforms undertaken by previous NDP governments, though it has continued the NDP's traditional support of organized labour. Manitoba's economy has remained prosperous, and its 2004 unemployment rate was the lowest in the country. Auto insurance rates are also significantly lower in Manitoba than in any other Canadian province.


In 2003, Doer supported Manitoba MP Bill Blaikie's campaign to lead the federal New Democratic Party. 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... A Member of Parliament, or MP, is a representative elected by the voters to a parliament. ... The Honourable Rev. ... The New Democratic Party (NDP; Nouveau Parti démocratique in French) is a political party in Canada with a progressive social democratic philosophy that contests elections at both the federal and provincial levels. ...


Doer's government was elected to a second mandate in 2003, receiving 35 seats and 49.39% of all votes cast (an impressive total in a three-party system). Doer was personally re-elected in Concordia with support from over 75% of the electorate. The June 3, 2003 provincial election in Manitoba, Canada was won by the New Democratic Party, which won 35 seats out of 57. ...


Doer emerged as a defender of Manitoba's internet pharmaceutical industry in early 2005, opposing efforts by the federal government to shut down the practice. In general, as Premier, Doer has earned a reputation for political moderation and caution, which has proved to be a recipe for political success. 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
