Riding Profile:

This residential riding in west-end Toronto runs the gamut from beautifully manicured lawns and stately homes to no-frills public housing. More than 18 per cent of the population is over 65, the highest percentage in Ontario.

Etobicoke-Centre is bordered by Dixon Road and Dundas Street to the north and the boundary of the old city of Toronto to the east.

The 1999 redistribution incorporated 85 per cent of the old Etobicoke West riding with 58 per cent of Etobicoke-Humber.

Political History:

The riding of Etobicoke-West was established in 1987 and was initially held by the Liberals. In 1990, PC candidate Chris Stockwell scored the first of three consecutive victories.

In the old Etobicoke-Humber riding, which was also established in 1987, the Liberals won in 1987 and 1990, but lost to the Tories in 1995.

The old riding of Humber was a Tory stronghold from 1975 to 1985, when Liberal Jim Henderson beat PC candidate Morley Kells.

Tory incumbent Stockwell announced in July 2003 that he would not be seeking re-election, after a report from the province's Integrity Commissioner criticized expenses from a family vacation that were picked up by Ontario Power Generation and his riding association.
