Riding Profile: The constituency was created in the 2003 redistribution from most of what was the Sackville-Beaver Bank riding (72%) and part of the Timberlea-Prospect riding (11%). Created mainly because of the fast-growing population of the Sackville area, the riding consists largely of bedroom suburbs and trailer parks and strip developments. It also contains two of the most affluent areas in the province (Glen Arbour and Upland Park).

1999: PC Barry Barnet defeated NDP Rosemary Godin by 622 votes.
1998: NDP Rosemary Godin defeats LIB Bill MacDonald by 693 votes.
