The riding, which has experienced few boundary changes over the years, has been held by the Progressive Conservatives for 19 years. Rob Leone won this riding for the PCs last election by just under 2,000 votes, replacing longtime PC MPP Gerry Martinuk, who had held the seat since 1995. The riding had been held by the NDP from 1975-1981 and 1987-1995, and the PCs from 1981-1987.
