History

This riding has been a Liberal stronghold since Lawrence MacAulay was first elected in 1988.

The last non-Liberal to take the seat was the Progressive Conservative’s Pat Binns in 1984. Binns lasted just one term, and prior to him the riding had alternated between Liberals and Progressive Conservatives for several elections.
