History

Lisa MacLeod won this riding by more than 15,000 votes last election. She replaced former MPP (and current federal Foreign Minister) John Baird when he made the leap to federal politics in 2005; he had held the riding since 1995. While the Liberals have won some polls in Barrhaven in recent elections, the Tories generally dominate in the more rural areas of the riding.
