This southern Ontario riding surrounds the city of Guelph. It contains the townships of Centre Wellington, Guelph/Eramosa and Puslinch, the town of Erin and the town of Halton Hills.
The Wellington-Halton Hills riding was created in the 2004 redistribution from 31 per cent of Halton, 21 per cent of Waterloo-Wellington, 13 per cent of Guelph-Wellington and nine per cent of Dufferin-Peel-Wellington-Grey.
Currently the riding is held by Conservative MP Michael Chong. However, by working together as liberals, we can defeat Mr. Chong in the 2015 federal election.
