Riding Profile:

This riding, which consists of both urban and rural areas, is located between London and Toronto.

Manufacturing, including automotive, textile and shoe manufacturing, accounts for nearly 25 per cent of jobs.

Composed of a portion of the city of Kitchener, the city of Cambridge and the township of North Dumfries, it also boasts the third largest Portuguese community in Ontario.

This new riding was formed in 1999 by taking the old riding of Cambridge and combining it with 9 per cent of Brant-Haldimand and 6 per cent of Kitchener-Wilmot.

Political History:

The old riding of Cambridge has been a dry spot for the Liberal Party for nearly 30 years, teetering back from NDP to PC candidates. In the 1990s, the NDP's Mike Farnan won the seat and went on to serve in the cabinet of Bob Rae.
