This Toronto riding contains part of the former city of Scarborough.
It lies between Lake Ontario in the south and Highway 401 in the north. The eastern border runs along Morningside Avenue and Highland Creek and Toyota Place, Bellamy Road and Bellamy Ravine Creek mark the western boundary.
In the 1999 redistribution, the old Scarborough East riding remained largely intact, adding small parts of Scarborough-Ellesmere and Scarborough North. The Scarborough Guildwood riding was created in 2007 using a large chunk of the former Scarborough East riding, as well as parts of Scarborough Centre and Scarborough Southwest.
Population: 108,813 (2006 census; a decrease of 3.4% since 2001)
Liberal Margarett Best beat Progressive Conservative Gary Grant by almost 5,000 votes in the 2007 election. Best would end up resigning in 2013, creating the need for an August byelection in August of that year.
Community activist MItzie Hunter was able to hold the riding for the Liberals, beating Conservative candidate Ken Kirupa with 7,606 votes, and former TTC chair and NDP candidate Adam Giambrone with 7,010.
In the old Scarborough East riding, Liberal Mary Anne Chambers ousted incumbent Tory Steve Gilchrist in 2003, winning by 7,430 votes.
Gilchrist was first elected to the riding in 1995, and was re-elected in 1997.
