Riding Profile:

This sprawling riding in rural eastern Ontario includes the towns of Napanee, Bath, Tweed, Madoc and Bancroft, as well as Amherst Island, Bon Echo Park and Frontenac Provincial Park.

Kingston and Lake Ontario make up part of its southern boundary.

This constituency has a diverse economic base, with mixed farming dominant in the southern part of the riding, while resource-based industries (such as mining, forestry and tourism) are strongly represented in the north.

The 1999 redistribution combined the old ridings of Frontenac-Addington, Hastings-Peterborough, Prince Edward-Lennox-South Hastings.

Political History:

Starting in 1975, the PC party reigned over the former Hastings-Peterborough riding for 15 years. In 1990, NDP candidate Elmer Buchanan won after placing third in the elections of 1975, 1977, 1981, 1985 and 1987. In 1995, the riding was reclaimed by the Tories.

In the former riding of Frontenac-Addington, PC incumbent Bill Vankoughnet was forced to resign from the caucus when he was charged with trying to buy sex from a Toronto Police officer disguised as a prostitute. He was later readmitted to the PC party.
