Political history

Liberal Michael Coteau held onto this seat for the party, winning 51 per cent of the vote.

Previously, Liberal David Caplan had held the Don Valley East seat, but he decided not to run again in 2011.

In 2007, Caplan won the riding by more than 10,000 votes. He won by a similar margin in 2003 when he beat PC Paul Sutherland by 9,226 votes.

In the old Oriole riding, Liberal Elinor Caplan — David Caplan's mother — defeated long-sitting Tory John Williams in 1985. Caplan was re-elected three times before resigning the seat to run federally. She was succeeded by her son, who prevailed in 1999 vote.

The York Mills riding was held by the Tories from 1963 to 1987, when Liberal Brad Nixon was elected. PC candidate David Turnbull defeated Nixon in 1990 and was re-elected in 1995.

The riding of Don Mills was PC territory from 1971 until 1987, when Dennis Timbrell was defeated by his Liberal opponent. The riding went to the NDP in the 1990 election, but was reclaimed by the Tories in 1995, with Dave Johnson taking the seat.
