Riding Profile:

Situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario, this southwestern Ontario riding is highly dependent on the surrounding manufacturing industry.

Many residents in this primarily English-speaking urban riding, which comprises much of the city of Burlington, commute to Toronto or Hamilton for work.

This new riding was established in 1999 by combining slightly more than 80 per cent of the former Burlington-South riding with 30 per cent of Halton Centre and 14 per cent of Oakville South.

Political History:

In the traditionally Tory stronghold that was the old Burlington South riding, George Kerr handed off the seat to incumbent Cam Jackson in 1985 after holding the seat since the 1960s.

The former Halton Centre was primarily the domain of the Liberals until 1995, when it was won by the PC party.

Tory incumbent Cam Jackson resigned his portfolio in Premier Ernie Eves' cabinet in Oct. 2002 when it was revealed that he charged more than $100,000 worth of dinners, hotel rooms and travel costs to Ontario. But he continued to seek re-election and was vindicated in Aug. of 2003 when the province's integrity commissioner ruled that his expenses were "reasonable and appropriate."
