Riding Profile:

This southwestern Ontario riding is sustained mainly by light manufacturing jobs, but has a history of farming.

It is located 40 kilometres west of Hamilton and encompasses the city of Brantford plus the rural municipalities of Paris and St. George and the townships of Brantford and South Dumfries.

Since 1999, this new riding has taken in the former Brantford riding and 30 per cent of the rural fringes of the city (which were in Brant-Halidmand).

Political History:
This riding has swung back and forth across the political spectrum since the 1970s. From 1975 to 1981, the Brantford riding was held by the NDP. PC candidate Phil Gillies won the riding in 1981 and went on to hold cabinet positions under Bill Davis. In 1987, the Liberals won, only to have the riding return to the NDP in 1990. The PC party under Mike Harris regained the seat in 1995.
