History [ edit ]
It was created in 1996 from
Kent and Lambton—Middlesex. It was renamed "Middlesex—Kent—Lambton" briefly in 2003 to 2004. While it is located in an area that was traditionally a swing area between the Liberals and Progressive Conservatives, it has always had a social conservative bent. The retirement of longtime MP Rose-Marie Ur in 2006 allowed Bev Shipley, her Conservative opponent in 2004, to seize the riding by a large margin. Shipley has held it ever since.
This riding lost a fraction of territory to
Chatham-Kent—Leamington and gained a fraction from Chatham-Kent—Essex during the 2012 electoral redistribution.
