Current MHA: Dwight Ball (Liberal)
District profile: Humber Valley covers some of the best agricultural land in Newfoundland and Labrador, and runs from Deer Lake to just north of Great Harbour Deep. Apart from Deer Lake, other communities in the district include Cormack, Cormack, Reidville, Hampden, Sop's Arm and part of Pasadena. In the 2007 redistribution, some of the district (including Trout River) was moved to St. Barbe district, while part of Humber East (including part of Pasadena) was added. If the redistribution had occurred before the byelection, the Tories would have won.
March 2007: Liberal Dwight Ball defeated Darryl Kelly by just seven votes in a byelection.
2003: PC Kathy Goudie defeated Ball by 289 votes. In January 2007, Goudie resigned her seat after Auditor General John Noseworthy found she had double-billed on about $3,800 of her constituency allowances.
1985-2003: Rick Woodford, a Tory who crossed the floor to join the Liberals in 1996, represented Humber Valley over an 18-year period. In the Conservative government, he served as minister of agriculture and rural development. Under the Liberal government, he held several portfolios, including transportation and agrifoods.
1975-1985: PC Wallace House was elected three times in Humber Valley. He served in cabinet in the health and education portfolios.
