Political history

Liberal Eric Hoskins held his seat in 2011, beating Christine McGirr of the NDP by more than 16,000 votes.

Hoskins was elected to the riding in a 2009 byelection, beating Tory Sue Ann Levy by 5,330 votes.

Liberal Michael Bryant was elected to the riding in the 2007 general election, beating Progressive Conservative Lillyann Goldstein by 9,370 votes. He relinquished his seat in May 2009 to lead Invest Toronto, where he was tasked with bringing investment to the provincial capital.

Bryant later quit Invest Toronto after being charged in the death of bicycle courier Darcy Allan Sheppard in downtown Toronto. Charges of criminal negligence causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle that were laid against Bryant were later dropped after the prosecutor concluded there was no reasonable prospect of conviction.

Bryant was first elected in 1999.
