Windsor-Tecumseh, held by the NDP for nearly two decades, will now be represented by the Liberal Party’s Irek Kusmiercyzk.
The riding had been represented in the House of Commons by a New Democrat MP since Joe Comartin was elected in 2000. He did not run for re-election in 2015, but the seat still went to the NDP with Cheryl Hardcastle representing the riding. Hardcastle’s defeat by Kusmiercyzk was unexpected as polling suggested the riding would likely remain NDP.
The Windsor–Tecumseh riding includes the Town of Tecumseh as well as the portion of the City of Windsor that runs from the international border and then down Langlois Avenue to Tecumseh Road East, along Tecumseh Road East to Pillette Road, and then south along Pillette Road to the Windsor International Airport and along its boundary to the Town of Tecumseh.
