This affluent riding is in the town of Markham north of Toronto. The riding is ethnically diverse, with an immigrant population of more than 60 per cent. It holds one of the province's largest Chinese populations along with significant East Indian and Italian communities.
Its borders run from 16th Avenue in the north to Steeles Avenue in the south, Highway 404 in the west and Markham city limits in the east.
Markham is home to more than 8,000 businesses, many of which are in the high-technology sector. As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Markham was formed out of two-thirds of the old Markham riding.
Population: 136,857 (up from 127, 191 in the 2006 census)
Liberal Michael Chan trounced Progressive Conservative Ki Kit Li by 11,575 votes in the 2007 general election — 56% of the vote. In 2011, it was another big victory for Chan, however his share of the popular vote decreased by about 6%. Chan was first elected in a byelection called after Liberal Tony Wong —who upset incumbent Tory David Tsubouchi in 2003 — shocked the party with his 2006 resignation to run for York regional council.
In the old Markham riding, Tory Don Cousens won in 1987 and 1990 before leaving provincial politics to become the town's mayor. Tsubouchi won the riding for the Progressive Conservatives in 1995 and again in 1999, serving in the cabinets of Mike Harris and Ernie Eves.
