Encyclopedia > Jim Maloway

Peter James (Jim) Maloway (November 10, 1952-) is a politician in Manitoba, Canada. He is currently a member of the Manitoba legislature.


Maloway was born in Sioux Lookout in northern Ontario, and was educated at the University of Manitoba. He later worked for the Manitoba Liquor Controls Commission, served as Executive Assistant to the Minister of Colleges and Universities and Tourism, and owns the Maloway & Eliason Insurance & Travel Centre.


Maloway has been active in the New Democratic Party since 1971. He unsuccessfully ran for the Winnipeg municipal council in 1974 and 1983, and was an unsuccessful candidate for the NDP nomination in the federal riding of Winnipeg North Centre in 1984. In 1973, he was the Returning Officer for the riding of Crescentwood and cast the deciding vote in favour of NDP candidate Harvey Patterson, who had tied Tory candidate Lawrie Pollard with 3729 votes (the results of this election were subsequently overturned on appeal).


Maloway was first elected to the Manitoba legislature for the New Democratic Party in the provincial election of 1986, defeating Independent candidate (and former New Democrat) Russell Doern by 3241 votes to 2006 in the north-end Winnipeg riding of Elmwood. He narrowly retained the seat against Liberal Ed Price in the 1988 election, at a time when NDP fortunes were falling throughout the province.


In the 1990 election, Maloway defeated Progressive Conservative Vic Toews (later a Manitoba cabinet minister, and after that a member of the Canadian House of Commons) by 4127 votes to 3035. He was re-elected by greater margins in the elections of 1995, 1999 and 2003, winning almost 66% of the votes on the latter occasion.


Despite his long tenure in parliament, Maloway has never been appointed to cabinet. He supported Lorne Nystrom's bid to become leader of the federal New Democratic Party in 1995, and supported Bill Blaikie in 2003.
