This largely rural riding in southeastern Ontario runs from Rice Lake and the Trent River in the north to Lake Ontario in the south.
The major centres are Port Hope, Trenton, Cobourg, Colborne and Campbellford. The Alderville First Nation is also included in the northern part of the riding.
Although the riding is mostly rural, there are significant manufacturing and retail trade sectors. As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the riding added almost one-quarter of the old Quinte riding to the old Northumberland riding.
The 2007 redistribution added 15 per cent of Prince Edward-Hastings to the existing riding.
Population: 125,261 (2011 census; an increase of 1.6% since 2006)
Progressive Conservative Rob Milligan barely defeated Liberal incumbent Lou Rinaldi by 707 votes in 2011.
Rinaldi beat Progressive Conservative Cathy Galt by 6,957 votes in 2007. Rinaldi was first elected in 2003, when he defeated Galt's husband, PC Doug Galt, who in turn was first elected in 1995 in the old Northumberland riding. He beat Liberal Joan Fawcett in that election. Fawcett had held the riding since 1985.
In the Prince Edward-Hastings riding, created in 1999, Tory Gary Fox lost to Liberal Ernie Parsons by just 56 votes. Parsons kept his seat in 2003 but was appointed as a justice of the peace in June 2007, leaving his seat open for the 2007 election. No byelection was held since the election was scheduled for less than six months after Parsons left the seat.
