Political History:

The Halton riding was created in 1999 from all of the old Halton North riding and 33 per cent of the old Halton Centre riding. In the old district of Halton North, all three parties were historically well-represented: in 1987, Liberal Walt Elliot won the seat, in 1990 it was the NDP's Noel Duignan and in 1995, the victor was Progressive Conservative Ted Chudleigh.

After the 1999 redistribution, Chudleigh crushed Liberal Mohan Anand by 20,738 votes. He held onto the seat in 2003, but by a much lower margin; Liberal Barbara Sullivan trailed him by 5,593 votes.

The old riding of Wellington North, which eventually landed largely in Waterloo-Wellington, has long been a Progressive Conservative stronghold. Tory J.H. Root was first elected in 1951; he was re-elected in Wellington-Dufferin in 1955, 1959, 1963, 1967 and 1971. A fellow Tory, Jack Johnson, held the seat from 1975 to 1990.

Tory Ted Arnott won the Wellington riding in 1990 and 1995, and was re-elected in Waterloo-Wellington after the 1999 redistribution. In 2003, he took 49 per cent of the vote to beat Liberal Deborah Whale.
