In the old Stoney Creek riding, PC Brad Clark was defeated in 2003, losing to Liberal Jennifer Mossop by more than 5,000 votes.

Clark won in 1999, defeating Liberal Chris Phillips. In 2001, he was named transportation minister and later served as labour minister under Ernie Eves.

The old riding of Hamilton East boasts a long history of pro-labour political representation stretching back to Norm Davison, who won in 1959 as a candidate for the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation.

NDP candidates held the seat from 1963 until 1995, when Dominic Agostino won for the Liberals. Agostino retained the seat in 1999 and again in 2003, beating NDP hopeful Bob Sutton by 6,963 votes. Agostino died of liver cancer in 2004. His brother Ralph ran in the subsequent byelection, but lost to current NDP Leader Andrea Horwath by more than 8,000 votes.
