This southwestern riding is affluent and primarily urban.

It extends from Lake Huron in the north to the eastern shore of the St. Clair River.

More than half of the riding's population is located in Sarnia.

The economy here is focused on petrochemicals and refined petroleum products.

In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Sarnia-Lambton added 40 per cent of Lambton to the old Sarnia riding.

Political History:

In the old riding of Sarnia, Liberal James Bullbrook won in 1967, 1971 and 1975. Liberal Paul Blundy won the seat over Tory Andy Brandt by just 257 votes in 1977, but Brandt defeated him in a 1981 rematch. Brandt was re-elected in 1985 and 1987, and served as interim party leader following Frank Miller's resignation. Brandt left politics to head the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, and the riding went to NDP candidate Bob Huget in 1990. David Boushy defeated Huget to reclaim the seat for the Tories in 1995.
