Political history

Liberal Harinder Takhar prevailed over PC David Brown in two consecutive elections, in 2007 and 2011. 

The riding was created in 2003 from parts of Mississauga Centre and Mississauga West ridings. The area was a PC stronghold before the 2003 vote.

In the pre-1999 Mississauga South riding, Tory Doug Kennedy won in 1975, 1977 and 1981.

In the old riding of Peel (which this area used to cover), Progressive Conservative T.L. Kennedy won an impressive 11 elections for the Tories between 1919 and 1955, failing only in the election of 1934. Kennedy held a number of cabinet portfolios and served briefly as the party's interim leader and provincial premier from 1948 to 1949.

Kennedy was succeeded by fellow Tory Bill Davis, who won the riding in 1959 and 1963. Davis went on to serve as premier from 1971 to 1985.
