|J. Ed MacDonald||PC|
|Robbie Loftus White||GRN|
Current MLA: Clarrie MacKinnon (NDP)
District profile: Pictou East is a largely rural riding that includes Thorburn, Sutherland's River and Merigomish. The town of Westville was added after the 1999 provincial election.
The Boat Harbour and Merigomish reserves are part of this riding.
Most people are employed by the service sector or work at one of the two regional high schools. Forestry, lobster fishing along the Northumberland Strait and agriculture are still important, although less so than they once were.
