This district takes in the western suburbs of Summerside and stretches up along the North Shore past Tyne Valley and to Lennox Island. It also splits the community of Miscouche (pop. 769) roughly in half.
The district shares in the shellfishery in Malpeque Bay, and has a major tourist attraction at Green Park. Lennox Island (pop. 261) is the province's largest First Nations reserve.
The emergency department at the Stewart Memorial Hospital in Tyne Valley has been closed down since the last election, but earlier this year a new clinic and outpatient facilities were announced.
