Riding profile

riding map

This southern Ontario riding borders Lake Erie in south, the city of London to the north and the Thames River in the northwest.

Following the 1999 riding redistribution, the new Elgin-Middlesex-London incorporated all of Elgin, almost 20 per cent of Middlesex and a small portion of London South.

The 2007 redistribution added Thames Centre and removed Delaware Township.

Population: 114,294 (2011 census; an increase of 3.9% since 2006)

Political history

PC candidate Jeff Yurek captured the riding by a healthy vote margin in 2011, beating Liberal Lori Baldwin-Sands. Before that election, Liberal Steve Peters had held the riding since 1999.

Peters carried the riding by more than 7,600 votes in 2007. In 2003, he beat Tory Smith by a convincing 11,766-vote margin. Peters narrowly beat out Smith in 1999.

In the former riding of Elgin, Mitch Hepburn (premier from 1934 to 1942) sat as a Liberal and then as a Liberal-Independent. He was followed by PC candidate Ron McNeil, who won eight successive elections starting in 1959. The Conservative run came to an end in 1987, when the Liberals retook the seat.
