Politics

The riding has been in existence since 1958 and has generally voted for the NDP since its creation and exclusively for the NDP since 1990, though the Conservatives and Liberals have early briefly held this seat.

However significant boundary changes and suburban population growth may throw some unexpected changes to the voting patterns here.

NDP MLA Bidhu Jha has represented the riding since 2003 and is running again.
