Political history

Progressive Conservative Sylvia Jones was re-elected to a second term in Dufferin-Caledon in 2011. She won support from nearly 47 per cent of the voters.

In 2007, Jones beat Liberal candidate Betsy Hall by 3,884 votes in the 2007 election.

The seat was previously held by former Premier Ernie Eves, who was elected in a 2002 byelection.

Eves held the seat easily in 2003, defeating Liberal Dan Yake by more than 14,000 votes.

Eves resigned in 2005 to make way for new party leader John Tory, who won the ensuing byelection by handily defeating Liberal Bob Duncanson.

Dufferin-Peel-Wellington-Grey was exclusively Tory territory during its brief history.

David Tilson, who was MPP for Dufferin-Peel from 1990 to 1999, won the new riding of Dufferin-Peel-Wellington-Grey in 1999.

However, Tilson stepped aside in 2002 to clear the way for Eves, the newly elected party leader.
