Political history

Jack MacLaren, known for libertarian views, won the riding in 2011 after scoring a surprise upset in the PC nomination process, when he beat centrist Norm Sterling, who had held nine cabinet posts during a 34-year political career.

Sterling served as an MPP from 1977 to 2011. In the 2007 election, he scored a convincing victory, beating the Liberal candidate by an 8,350-vote margin.

Lanark-Carleton has been traditionally Tory and voters continued the trend in 1999 and 2003, electing Sterling by decisive margins in both years. In 2003, he beat Liberal Marianne Wilkinson by more than 6,000 votes.
