Political history

Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak was re-elected in 2011 with a 12,211-vote margin over Liberal Katie Trombetta. Hudak was first elected by a comfortable 10,000-vote margin in the 2007.

He was elected PC leader in 2009 after the unceremonious exit of former leader John Tory, who lost a byelection in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock earlier that year.

Progressive Conservative Brad Clark won the first election in the Stoney Creek riding in 1999, defeating Liberal Chris Phillips. In 2001, he was named transportation minister and later served as labour minister under Ernie Eves.

Clark was defeated in 2003, losing to Liberal Jennifer Mossop by more than 5,000 votes.

Voters in Niagara Centre elected former Welland New Democrat MPP Peter Kormos in 1999 and re-elected him by more than 10,000 votes in 2003.
