Riding profile

riding map

This southeastern riding is located along the St. Lawrence River and includes the city of Kingston, with the remainder being mostly rural. This riding includes Queen's University, the Royal Military College and Kingston Penitentiary.

After the 1999 redistribution, the new riding was formed from half of Frontenac-Addington and almost all of the old Kingston and the Islands riding.

Kingston and the Islands: Population: 125,227 (2011 census; an increase of 5.2% since 2006)

Political history

This has been a Liberal stronghold since 1985, with a breakthrough win for the NDP in 1990. The 1981 and 1977 elections saw PC wins.

John Gerretsen, appointed attorney general in the fall of 2011, had kept the riding Liberal since 1995. But the man who was mayor of Kingston for most of the 1980s, announced last year that he wouldn`t be running again.
