Ottawa—Vanier (provincial electoral district)
Ottawa—Vanier is a provincial electoral district in Ottawa, Canada, represented in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario since 1908. It is located in the east end of Ottawa; the riding was represented in the Legislative Assembly by Liberal Madeleine Meilleur from 2003 until her resignation in June 2016. The riding, with a large Franco-Ontarian population in Vanier, Lower Town, in adjoining neighbourhoods, has been one of the most solidly Liberal in the country in recent years, having elected Liberals both federally and provincially in every election since 1971. A sizable minority of the riding is in the former city of Vanier, merged with Ottawa in 2000. Vanier has long been home to much of Ottawa's francophone population, but between 1992 and 2001, the size of this linguistic group has fallen by 50%.

The neighbourhoods with higher proportions of anglophone residents, including Sandy Hill and New Edinburgh tend to vote Liberal, but with significant support for the Ontario New Democratic Party; the riding is characterized by below average voter turn-out and an annual loss of 1% in voter support for the provincial Liberals since 1987 thereby reducing their support from 74% to 50%.

1999 Ontario general election
An Ontario general election was held on June 3, 1999, to elect members of the 37th Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, Canada. The governing Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, led by Premier Mike Harris, was re-elected to a second majority government, it was the first election in which the Legislative Assembly of Ontario had a reduced number of seats. The province's riding boundaries were different from those used in federal elections. In the 1999 election, for the first time, provincial riding boundaries were redrawn to match federal ridings, resulting in 27 fewer seats — and 27 fewer Members of Provincial Parliament — in the legislature. Notably, in a number of ridings this resulted in incumbent MPPs directly facing each other in the new seats. According to a poll released on the eve of the election, the Liberal Party entered the campaign with a lead over the Progressive Conservatives; this poll's accuracy was disputed by many and Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty cast doubt on it: noting that most polling companies claim to be accurate 19 times out of 20, he suggested that this might have been the 20th.
Subsequent polls taken in the early period of the campaign showed the Progressive Conservatives with a commanding lead over the Liberals, in a manner more consistent with pre-election numbers. Harris' government had delivered large tax cuts and reduced the deficit, but they had severely cut spending in the process, they had the support of the legendary Tory political machine, bolstered by a group of American experts imported from the United States' Republican Party. They targeted Dalton McGuinty as inexperienced, attacked him for lacking a clear vision; this was successful due to McGuinty having a reputation for being uncomfortable and stiff in the media. During the leader's debates, McGuinty had a poor performance, being unable to explain his party's platform and being compared to fictional serial killer Norman Bates by NDP leader Howard Hampton; the extensive use of attack ads and wedge issues by the Tories was a new development in Canadian politics, some commentators worried the election process was becoming Americanized.
The third major party, the Ontario New Democratic Party led by Howard Hampton, spent much the campaign battling the memory of Bob Rae's unpopular government in the early 1990s. Despite Hampton's efforts to reach out to labour, the NDP were weakened as the major unions deserted them in favour of the Liberals, hoping to defeat the Tories by strategic voting; the province was enjoying strong economic growth at the time which vindicated the Conservatives' deficit-cutting measures in the public. The Liberal Party managed to recover some support late in the campaign, but it was not enough and the Tories were re-elected with a second consecutive majority government. Notes: No fewer than 27 candidates affiliated with the Communist Party of Canada - Marxist-Leninist contested this election as independents; these candidates won a total of 7,194 votes. The Reform Association of Ontario fielded one candidate. Three independent candidates were members of the Humanist Party of Ontario, it is possible that some independent candidates were members of these or other unregistered parties.
