Brampton (electoral district)
|Ontario electoral district|
|Defunct federal electoral district|
|Legislature||House of Commons|
Brampton was a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1988 to 1997. This riding was created in 1987, from Brampton—Georgetown riding, and was abolished in 1996, when it was redistributed between Brampton Centre and Brampton West—Mississauga ridings.
It consisted of that part of the City of Brampton lying west of Dixie Road.
Three weeks after the election was called, Liberals nominated Harbhajan Pandori, a 41-year-old computer analyst for Canadian Tire. He was a resident of Mississauga, and "president of the large Sikh temple." He campaigned against the proposed federal sales tax (the GST) and "supermailboxes" in new subdivisions. NDP candidate John Morris focused on campaigning against free trade.
