This southwest Toronto riding includes mansions along the Humber River and boarding houses for former psychiatric patients in the Parkdale neighbourhood.
The riding extends from the Canadian Pacific Railway line in the north to Lake Ontario in the south, the Humber River in the west to the Canadian National Exhibition grounds in the east.
As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Parkdale-High Park combined almost all of High Park-Swansea with 60 per cent of Parkdale and 20 per cent of York South.
Population: 105,103 (2011 census; a 2.9% jump from 2006)
New Democrat Cheri Di Novo, first elected in a September 2006 byelection, beat Liberal Cortney Pasternak with a 18,365 to 14,877 vote win in 2011.
Di Novo, a United Church of Canada minister, beat Sylvia Watson by almost 7,000 votes in the 2007 election.
The 2006 byelection was called after Liberal Gerard Kennedy relinquished his seat to run for the federal Liberal leadership that eventually went to Stéphane Dion.
Kennedy was first elected to the legislature in a 1996 byelection in York South, won the new riding of Parkdale-High Park in 1999, easily defeating Tory Annamarie Castrilli with almost 55 per cent of the total vote.
Kennedy won again in 2003, routing Tory Stephen Snell by more than 16,000 votes.
New Democrat Ed Ziemba represented the old riding of High-Park Swansea from 1975 to 1981. Tory Yuri Shymko won in 1981 and 1985, only to lose to Liberal David Fleet in 1987. NDP candidate Elaine Ziemba defeated Fleet in 1990, but lost to Tory Derwyn Shea in 1995.
