This southwestern Ontario riding is in an economic area that is highly industrialized, with the Big Three automakers operating nearby. Set on the south shore of the Detroit River, it includes the western half of Windsor — the area west of Langlois Avenue, south of Tecumseh Road East and west of Pillette Road.
In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Windsor West combined 75 per cent of Windsor-Sandwich with 58 per cent of Windsor-Walkerville and five per cent of Windsor-Riverside.
Population: 118,973 (2011 census; a decrease of 2.7% since 2006)
Liberal Teresa Piruzza won the riding over the NDP’s Helmi Charif in 2011 by 3,583 votes.
Piruzza replaced her mentor, former cabinet minister Sandra Pupatello when Pupatello decided not to seek re-election.
Pupatello beat New Democrat Mariano Klimowicz by 8,217 votes in the 2007 election. Pupatello, first elected in 1995, did not seeking re-election.
After the 1999 redistribution, Pupatello enjoyed runaway victories in the newly created Windsor West riding in 1999 and 2003, winning by over 18,000 and 14,000 votes, respectively.
The former riding of Windsor-Sandwich was held by Liberal Bill Wrye between 1981 and 1990. The NDP's George Dadamo won the riding in the 1990 election; it passed to the Liberals, represented by Pupatello, in 1995.
