2019 Canada election results: Prince Albert

Conservative Randy Hoback has been re-elected in the riding of Prince Albert.


One of the few Saskatchewan ridings that was relatively unchanged in the 2012 riding redistribution, Randy Hoback seeks re-election for a fourth term.

The riding is primarily limited to the city of Prince Albert, but also extends eastward to include Melfort and other nearby towns.

Hoback took 49.8 per cent of the vote in 2015 to win the riding for a third time.

Prince Albert has been held by the Reform/Alliance/Conservative parties since 1997, but was also held by NDP MP Stanley Hovdebo from 1979 to 1993.

Prince Albert was also the longtime constituency for two prime ministers—Mackenzie King from 1926 to 1945, and John Diefenbaker from 1953 to 1979.
