Doreen Dodick

Doreen Dodick (born February 17, 1932 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan) is a politician in Manitoba, Canada.[1][2] She was a New Democratic Party member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba from 1981 to 1986.

Dodick was educated in Saskatchewan, and subsequently moved to Manitoba. She worked as an organizer for the NDP before entering political life herself.

She was a candidate in the south Winnipeg riding of Riel in the provincial election of 1977, but lost to Tory incumbent Donald Craik by almost 4,000 votes. Four years later, in the provincial election of 1981, she defeated Craik[3] by 242 votes in a rematch, as the NDP won a majority government under Howard Pawley. She was not appointed to cabinet.

In the 1986 election, Dodick lost to Tory challenger Gerry Ducharme by over 700 votes. She has not sought a return to provincial politics since this time. In the provincial election of 1999, she supported Linda Asper's campaign in the Riel riding.

In 2002, Dodick supported Bill Blaikie's bid to lead the federal New Democratic Party.
