La Vérendrye

La Vérendrye, a provincial electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, has a rich history dating back to its creation in 1879. As one of Manitoba's oldest ridings, it occupies a significant place in the province's political landscape. The district is situated in southeastern Manitoba, bordered by Lac du Bonnet, Dawson Trail, Steinbach, Springfield-Ritchot, Midland, and Borderland within the province, Ontario to the east, and the U.S. state of Minnesota to the south.

The riding encompasses various communities, including Buffalo Point and its First Nation, Gardenton, Grunthal, Kleefeld, La Broquerie, Marchand, Middlebro, New Bothwell, Otterburne, Piney, St. Malo, St-Pierre-Jolys, Sarto, Sprague, Stuartburn, Sundown, Vassar, Vita, and Woodridge, as well as Buffalo Bay in Lake of the Woods.

Politically, La Vérendrye has seen a dynamic history. Initially, it was a battleground between Liberals and Conservatives. From 1922, the Progressives, evolving into the Liberal-Progressives and then back to Liberals, dominated the riding, maintaining control even as the Liberal Party's influence waned in the 1960s. The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba (PCs) captured the riding in 1973, maintaining a stronghold for three decades.

In 1999, the New Democratic Party's Ron Lemieux broke through, marking the first NDP win in the constituency, a success he repeated in 2003 with a significant majority. The 2008 boundary changes dramatically altered the riding, leading to a decisive victory for PC candidate Dennis Smook in 2011. Although Lemieux was re-elected, it was in the newly formed Dawson Trail riding.

Since 2011, La Vérendrye has remained a PC stronghold, with Konrad Narth recently elected in October 2023, succeeding the retiring MLA Smook.

Named after Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, Sieur de La Vérendrye, an explorer and fur trader who established Fort Rouge in 1738 (now Winnipeg), the riding's name honors a significant figure in Manitoba's early history.
