Riding Profile:

This southernmost of the three Etobicoke ridings is primarily a working class constituency, and boasts the greatest share of Polish speakers in the province.

Bounded on the south by Lake Ontario, its northern border is made up of Burnhamthorpe Road and Dundas Street. The riding runs west to Highway 427 and east to the Humber River.

The riding is comprised of mainly residential areas in the north, while the south has a mix of residential and industrial.

In 1999, Etobicoke-Lakeshore absorbed 20 per cent of the old Etobicoke-Humber riding and 15 per cent of Etobicoke West.

Political History:

One of Etobicoke Lakeshore's most famous former MPPs is Alan Eagleson, who sat as the riding's Tory member from 1963 to 1967. Eagleson left to head the National Hockey League Player Association. The riding was won by Tory and NDP candidates in the 1970s and 1980s.

In 1990, NDP Ruth Grier defeated Liberal Sam Shepard by 11,112 votes and would go on to be appointed Minister of Environment and Minister of Health. Grier placed third in the 1995 election, trailing Liberal Bruce Davis and Tory frontrunner Morley Kells.
