History

This riding has elected both Conservatives/PCs and Liberals since its creation in 1997, with most elections decided by less than 3,000 votes.

Conservative MP Mike Allen won a third term here in 2011, the largest victory for the Conservatives in Atlantic Canada in that election.

He won the seat from the Liberal incumbent in a narrow victory in 2006, but won by a landslide in both 2008 and 2011 before retiring in 2015. Harvey beat Bragdon in 2015 to take the seat.
