Political history

Liberal Charles Sousa prevailed over PC Tim Peterson by more than 5,000 votes in 2007. Peterson was elected under the Liberal banner in 2003, when he edged out PC Margaret Marland by 248 votes, and switched over the PCs. The riding was a PC stronghold before the 2003 vote.

Sousa won with more than 50% of the popular vote in 2011. 

He is now the Minister of Finance for the governing Liberals. He was appointed to cabinet after running unsuccessfully for the Liberal leadership, losing to Kathleen Wynne.

Marland held the riding from 1985 to 1999. Prior to that, 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.
