RIDING PROFILE

 Riding Map
This Greater Toronto Area riding lies within the city of Mississauga, and includes some of the city's oldest neighbourhoods, such as Lorne Park, Lakeview, Port Credit and Clarkson.

The borders run from Dundas Street and the Queensway in the north to the shoreline of Lake Ontario in the south. In the west, its borders start at Winston Churchill Boulevard and the city limits of Mississauga, and in the east it ends at Etobicoke Creek.

According to the 2001 census, the immigrant
population was over 34 per cent. Manufacturing, retail trade and service sectors are major employers. Average family income is $95,918 and unemployment is 4.9 per cent.

Mississauga South was created in 1976 and used to be called Mississauga riding. In 1996, it expanded its boundary in the northeast. In 2004, neighbourhoods north of the Queen Elizabeth Way were added.

Population: 113,003

Political History
In 2004, Liberal Paul Szabo defeated Conservative candidate Phil Green by 8,601 votes to win a fourth term of office.

Progressive Conservative Don Blenkarn was elected in the old Peel South riding in 1972, defeated in Mississauga in 1974 and re-elected in Mississauga South in 1979. Blenkarn defeated Szabo in 1980 and 1984 and another Liberal, Gil Gillespie, in 1988. But Szabo won in 1993, when a Reform candidate, John Veenstra, ran, splitting the old Tory vote and leaving Blenkarn in third place.
