Current MLA: Becky Kent (NDP)

District profile: The boundaries changed in 2003, but 65 per cent of this riding stayed the same.

About one-third of the riding includes Cole Harbour and the Mi'kmaq First Nations Reserve. It also consists of the coastal communities of Eastern Passage and Cow Bay.

CFB Shearwater is the largest source of employment for both military and civilian personnel.

This eastern part of Metro Halifax, a mainly middle-class district, includes small businesses and retail as well as fish-processing businesses. Landmarks include beaches, a golf course and the Cow Bay "Moose" – a statue overlooking the ocean.
