Political history

Liberal Gerry Phillips has won every election in Scarborough-Agincourt since its creation in 1987. He did not seek re-election in 2011, but the riding stayed red anyway. Former school trustee Soo Wong will fight the election for the Liberals.

In 2007, Phillips trounced Progressive Conservative John Del Grande by just over 11,000 votes. In 2003, he beat Tory Yolanda Chan by 11,834 votes. Wong did not get elected with those wide margins, but beat her PC rival by a little under 5,000 votes.
