Current MLA: Judy Streatch, Minister of Education (PC)

District profile: The district was carved out from areas of both Lunenburg and Halifax counties in the 1993 redistribution.

In Lunenburg, it includes the Municipality of Chester, the home of sailors during Chester Race Week and a favourite summer place for the wealthy. Oak Island Resort and Ross Farm in New Ross are other tourism draws.

The village of Peggy's Cove – Nova Scotia's No. 1 tourist attraction – and the rugged coastal hamlets of Indian Harbour and Seabright also form part of this district.

There are also many Halifax commuters living in subdivisions clustered in and around St. Margaret's Bay.
