The southernmost of the three Etobicoke ridings is bounded on the south by Lake Ontario, in the north by Burnhamthorpe Road and Dundas Street, in the west by Highway 427 and in the east by the Humber River.
The riding is comprised of mainly residential areas in the north, while the south has a mix of residential and industrial.
In 1999, Etobicoke-Lakeshore absorbed 20 per cent of the old Etobicoke-Humber riding and 15 per cent of Etobicoke West.
Population: 114,641 (2006 census; an increase of 0.6% since 2001)
This riding recently swung to the Progressive Conservatives, when Doug Holyday won the seat for the party in an August 2013 byelection.
The seat had been Liberal for more than 10 years before that, when Laurel Broten was first elected in Etobicoke-Lakeshore in 2003.
Broten was re-elected in 2007, by a margin of more than 6,700 votes over PC hopeful Tom Barlow.
In 2011, Broten took 51 per cent of the vote, but announced in June of 2013 that she was stepping down from politics. Her resignation took effect on July 2.
Prior to Broten, PC Morley Kells had held the riding for two consecutive terms.
Kells was first elected in 1995, trouncing Liberal Bruce Davis and the NDP's Ruth Grier. Grier was elected to represent the riding in 1990 and would go on to hold the environment and health portfolios.
One of Etobicoke-Lakeshore's most famous former MPPs is Alan Eagleson, who sat as the riding's Tory member from 1963 to 1967. Eagleson left to head the National Hockey League Players' Association. The riding was won by Tory and NDP candidates in the 1970s and 1980s.
