Riding profile

riding map

This southern riding lies along the shores of the Detroit River and includes the northeast of Windsor, the town of Tecumseh, the village of Clair Beach and Peche Island.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Windsor-St. Clair combined almost all of Windsor-Riverside with 42 per cent of the old Windsor-Walkerville riding.

The 2007 change kept the old riding intact while adding six per cent of the Essex riding.

Population: 115,528 (2011 census; a decrease of 2.5% since 2006)

Political history

New Democrat Percy Hatfield took the riding from the Liberals in a 2013 byelection after former deputy premier and minister of finance, Dwight Duncan, resigned from his seat in February 2013.

Percy won by a large margin of 10,535 votes over Tory Robert de Verteuil.

In 2011, Duncan bested New Democrat Andrew McAvoy by 3,718 votes. Duncan also scored a convincing win the 2007 election, beating the NDP's Helmi Charif by more than 9,000 votes. Duncan defeated New Democrat Madeline Crnec by a similar margin in 2003 in the old Windsor-St. Clair riding.

Duncan was first elected in 1995 in the old Windsor-Walkerville when he beat NDP incumbent Wayne Lessard. Duncan won again in 1999 in Windsor-St. Clair after redistribution.

The riding of Windsor-Riverside was an NDP stronghold since Dave Cooke first won the seat in 1977. He won five more election victories until resigning in 1997. New Democrat Wayne Lessard won the resulting byelection.
