Riding profile

election

An urban riding situated north of Toronto, Brampton-Springdale is sprawling, taking in the heart of Brampton, the historical downtown and a variety of neighbourhoods including Heart Lake, Peel Village and the old town.

The riding stretches from Brampton city limits in the south to Mayfield Road in the north, and between Kennedy Road South, Vodden Street East, Main Street North and Hurontario Street in the west and Mayfield Road, Torbram Road, Bovaird Drive and Dixie Road in the east.

The 2007 redistribution created this riding using 72 per cent of Brampton Centre and 17 per cent of Bramalea-Gore-Malton-Springdale. The former Brampton Centre was first created in 1999 by combining 60 per cent of Brampton North with 20 per cent of Brampton South.

Population: 131,797 (2006 census; an increase of 12.9% since 2001)

Political history

In 2011, Liberal Linda Jeffrey was elected to a third term. She won 44.4 per cent of the vote. PC candidate Pam Hundal won just over 36 per cent of the vote.

Jeffrey defeated Progressive Conservative Carman McLelland by 6,965 votes in 2007. She was first elected in 2003, when she eked out a 1,025-vote win over Progressive Conservative Joe Spina.

The Tories long had a hold on the Brampton region through Bill Davis, who served as premier from 1971 to 1985. Davis first won the Peel riding in 1959 to 1967, then represented Peel North until 1975 and finally, was MPP for the riding of Brampton until 1985.

In 1987, McClelland — then a Liberal — won in the newly created Brampton North riding and repeated the feat in 1990, but was ousted by Spina in 1995.

Voters returned Spina in the new Brampton Centre riding in 1999 as he crushed Liberal Gurjit S. Grewal by more than 10,000 votes.

Tory Raminder Gill won Bramalea-Gore-Malton-Springdale in 1999, beating Liberal Dave Toor. Gill was unseated in 2003 as Liberal Kuldip Kular beat Gill by 3,765 votes.
