Political history

Liberal Brad Duguid has won convincingly in the last three elections. This year, having been appointed Minister of Training, Colleges & Universities, Duguid only has more visibility. He won the riding in 2011 by 26.3 percentage points over PC Carol Williams. 

In 2007, he beat Progressive Conservative Samy Appadurai by 9,455 votes. Four years earlier he managed a 10,072-vote victory over PC incumbent Marilyn Mushinski.

Mushinski claimed the redistributed riding in 1999, beating Liberal Costas Manios.

Mulshinski beat New Democrat incumbent David Warner in the old riding of Scarborough-Ellesmere in 1995.

Other than a single NDP win in 1967, the Tories held the old riding of Scarborough Centre from 1963 to 1987, when it fell to Liberal Cindy Nicholas. The seat went to New Democrat Steve Owens in 1990, but returned to the Tories in 1995 when Dan Newman won the riding.

Former NDP Leader Stephen Lewis won elections in the old riding of Scarborough West in 1963, 1967, 1971, 1975 and 1977. New Democrats Richard Johnston was voted in after a 1979 byelection and held it until 1990, when the NDP's Anne Swarbrick was elected.

Tory James Brown won in 1995.
