Re the meaning of "riding": My understanding is that it is based on an Anglo-Saxon word meaning "thirding", because Yorkshire was divided into three voting districts (still today called the "East Riding", etc.). Why the term came to be imported into Canada for all electoral districts, I'm not sure.
