Geography

History

Former Conservative MP Rob Moore was first elected here in 2004, replacing (and defeating) John Herron, a former PC MP who did not join the newly merged Conservative Party and ran for the Liberal Party instead.

With the sole exception Liberal MP Paul Zed, who was elected in 1993, the riding always elected a conservative candidate prior to 2015 when the Liberals swept the entire province.
