Encyclopedia > Manitoba general election, 1973

The Manitoba General Election of June 28, 1973 was won by the social-democratic New Democratic Party, which took 31 of 57 seats. The Progressive Conservative Party finished second with 21, while the Manitoba Liberal Party took the remaining five.


A right-of-centre municipal organization known as the Independent Citizen's Election Committee convinced the Progressive Conservative and Liberal parties to avoid competing against each other in certain Winnipeg-area ridings, such that a single "anti-socialist" alternative to the NDP could be offered. This campaign was generally unsuccessful.

Manitoba is located in the longitudinal centre of Canada, although it is considered part of Western Canada.
In the 1917 election in the midst of the conscription crisis, the Liberals were split in half and the new Union party carried all but one seat.
The most dramatic episode was the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919 which shut down most activity for six weeks, starting May 15 until the strike collapsed on June 25, 1919 as the workers were gradually returning to their jobs and the Central Strike Committee decided to end the strike.
Nineteen Nineteen. The General Strike (8511 words)
To the laborers, the general strike was a potentially powerful yet largely untested means of forcing employers to meet the demands of one union by involving all the unions in a city in the struggle.
The idea of a "general strike," which can be serviceably defined as "the strike of a majority of the workers in the more important industries of any one locality or region,"2 originated and was developed in Europe.
The general strike inaugurated by the Seattle Central Labor Union was an undertaking in violation of the rules and regulations of the American Federation of Labor.
