Riding profile

election

This ethnically diverse riding northwest of Toronto boasts the largest population of any riding in Ontario.

As a result of redistribution before the 1999 election, the Brampton West-Mississauga riding was created from 55 per cent of the former Brampton South, 25 per cent of Mississauga North and a sliver of Brampton North.

The Brampton West riding was created in 2007, absorbing parts of Brampton West-Mississauga and Brampton Centre.

Population: 170,422 (2006 census; an increase of 50% since 2001)

Political history

Liberal Vic Dhillon was elected for the third time in a row in 2011, taking nearly 44 per cent of the vote.

Dhillon first took the riding in 2003 when he edged out Tony Clement — currently the president of the federal treasury board under Prime Minister Stephen Harper — by a 2,541-vote margin in the old riding of Brampton South.

Clement took the seat for the PCs in the 1995 election, and was re-elected in 1999. Liberal Bob Callahan, who was first elected to the old Brampton riding in 1985, was re-elected in 1987 to the newly formed riding of Brampton South, and won again in 1990.

Former Ontario premier Bill Davis (1971-85) was first elected for the Conservatives in the nearby riding of Peel in 1959. He went on to win the former riding of Brampton North in 1975, 1977 and 1981.
