What is Ward 3?

One of the most confusing aspects of any election is knowing what riding/ward you are in.  Since the boundaries are not all the same for provincial/federal/municipal elections, a person may be within different geographical voting areas.  One election you may vote in the same riding as the neighbour across the road; another election you may vote in different ridings.

So what is Ward 3?

Ward 3 is considered "Etobicoke Centre".  Sounds easy enough to understand if you knew what 'centre' was for Etobicoke.  

The basic boundary lines are as follows:

Easy boundaries:

WEST: Mississauga border
NORTH: Eglinton Avenue W
EAST: Kipling Avenue

Difficult boundaries:

SOUTH (east of Hwy 427) Burnhamthorpe Road
SOUTH (west of Hwy 427) Dundas Street W

Confused?  Don't worry, you're not alone.
