Elections Canada confirmed that Lisa Hepfner was elected in the riding of Hamilton Mountain on Sept. 22, 2019.

The Liberal received 34.1 per cent of 48,504 votes cast in the riding followed by NDP candidate Malcolm Allen who collected 32.4 per cent.

Hepfner, who won in a close race by just 835 votes, takes over after the NDP’s Scott Duvall held the seat since 2015.

A riding directly south of Hamilton’s downtown core, the electoral district of Hamilton Mountain is bordered by the Niagara Escarpment east of West 5th road and Rymal Road to the south — except for the area between the Lincoln Alexander Parkway and Rymal, where the western border becomes Garth Street.

The riding was created in 1966 from parts of Ancaster—Dundas—Flamborough—Aldershot, Hamilton South, Hamilton West, Stoney Creek, and Wentworth ridings.

In 2003, the riding was redefined to its current state. Hamilton Mountain has a population of around 103,615 and more than 25 per cent of the riding’s residents are immigrants, with large populations born in the Philippines, Italy and the U.K., according to the 2016 census.

The riding gets the name “Mountain” from the Niagara Escarpment, which is a World Biosphere Reserve.
