Riding Profile: Tyne Valley (pop. 223) is the major centre in this riding and home to Stewart Memorial Hospital. This hospital has recently been threatened with the closure of its emergency department, largely due to staffing difficulties.

Political History: Some of the communities forming this district used to be part of the 3rd Prince district a Liberal lock for 23 years. Voters in 2nd Prince, the other former district now making up Cascumpec - Grand River, have been far less predictable sending combinations of Tory and Liberal candidates to Province House. Liberal Keith Milligan, the assemblyman for 2nd Prince, was premier from Oct. 10 to Nov. 27, 1996.
