Current MLA: Dave Wilson (LIB)

District profile: This riding was known as Cape Breton East until incumbent Dave Wilson successfully campaigned to have it renamed Glace Bay. The new name accurately reflects the riding, which consists almost entirely of the town of Glace Bay.

The district was once the coal centre of Cape Breton.

The former headquarters of the Cape Breton Development Corporation's coal division has been turned into a call centre, while the former headquarters of the United Mine Workers was torn down some years ago during a facelift of Glace Bay's main street.
