This northern riding is almost evenly split between urban and rural communities, and includes the Chippewas of Rama First Nation and the Beausoleil Band of Christian Island.
The riding extends from Georgian Bay in the northwest to Lake Simcoe in the southeast, and includes the communities of Orillia, Midland and Penetanguishene. There is a large manufacturing sector in this riding, as well as a vital tourism-related sector.
In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Simcoe North combined 33 per cent of Muskoka-Georgian Bay with almost all of the former Simcoe East.
Population: 119,400 (2006 census; an increase of 7.5% since 2001)
Progressive Conservative Garfield Dunlop has held the riding since 1999. In 2011 he beat Liberal Fred Larsen by almost 15,00 votes. In 2007, Dunlop beat Liberal Laura Domsy by 8,892 votes, and in 2003 beat Liberal Paul Sloan by 3,677 votes.
The old riding of Simcoe East was held by the Tories from 1943 until redistribution in 1999.
In the riding of Muskoka-Georgian Bay, Liberal Ken Black won in 1987, followed by New Democrat Dan Waters in 1990. The riding was won by Tory Bill Grimmett in 1995.
Grimmett's seat was eliminated when the Mike Harris government reduced the number of ridings in the province and he chose to return to his Port Carling law practice rather than compete for the party's nomination in a new riding.
