Riding profile

election

This Simcoe-area riding is situated on the western shore of Lake Simcoe and the Holland River, and includes the towns of Bradford, West Gwillimbury and Innisfil.

Barrie-Simcoe-Bradford was established in 1996 by merging parts of Simcoe Centre and York-Simcoe.

The riding was reduced in 2007 to reflect the growing population of the city of Barrie, creating the Barrie riding and redistributing some territory in the Simcoe-Grey and York-Simcoe ridings.

Population: 135,711 (2011 census, an increase of 5.7% from 2006)

Political history

Liberal Aileen Carroll, who defeated PC incumbent Joe Tascona in the 2007 vote, did not seeking re-election in 2011, and the riding went from Liberal red to Tory blue. Former Barrie city councillor Rod Jackson returned the riding to the PCs, which have historically performed well here.

Tascona won decisively in 2003, beating Liberal Mike Ramsay by 9,546 votes. He first took the seat in 1995 with a 17,729-vote victory over Liberal Bruce Owen, who was attempting to reclaim the seat he lost in 1990 to NDP candidate Paul Wessenger.

From 1943 through 1987, Simcoe Centre was a Tory stronghold, electing four consecutive Progressive Conservatives. Owen defeated PC Earl Rowe in 1987.
