Riding Profile:

Manufacturing is the largest employer in this predominantly English-speaking southern Ontario riding, with some agriculture, particularly in beef, hog and dairy farming accounting for the labour force.

This riding includes Dufferin County, Egremont and Proton in Grey County, and Mount Forest, Arthur and Erin in Wellington County. Orangeville and Caledon are also in the riding.

In 1999, the riding was created when the old Dufferin-Peel-Wellington was merged with 25 per cent of Wellington and 7 per cent of Grey-Owen Sound.

Political History:

The only Liberal Party member ever elected in the former riding of Dufferin-Simcoe was Wilfrid Davy Smith in 1934. He was defeated in 1937 by PC candidate A.W. Downer, who served from 1937 to 1971.

T.L. Kennedy, Ontario's premier from 1948 to 1949, held the former riding of Peel from 1919 to 1930, and again from 1937 to 1955.
