This central Toronto riding runs from Lake Ontario in the south to Don River/Millwood Road in the north, and from the Don Valley Parkway in the west to eastern boundaries that run along Coxwell Avenue, Greenwood Avenue and Leslie Street.
The riding includes the East York, Riverdale, Leslieville and Danforth neighbourhoods and the Leslie Street spit.
The riding was created in the 1999 redistribution, taking in all of the former Riverdale riding, plus 40 per cent of the former York East riding and a few polls from Beaches-Woodbine.
Until June 2000, Toronto-Danforth was known as Broadview-Greenwood. The name was changed to reflect similar name changes in the local federal riding.
Population: 103,655 (2006 census; a decrease of 5.5% since 2001)
In 2011, Peter Tabuns of the NDP retained his seat in this downtown Toronto riding by beating Liberal Melissa Sterling.
In 2007, Tabuns defeated Liberal Joyce Rowlands by 6,527 votes. Tabuns, a former city councillor, was first elected in a March 2006 byelection in which he beat Liberal Ben Chin.
The byelection was called after the NDP's Marilyn Churley, who had held the seat, relinquished it for an unsuccessful run at a federal seat in Beaches-East York.
Churley beat Liberal Jim Davidson by 6,006 votes in 2003 and later that year caused a stir when, after the NDP lost official party status, she threatened to change her surname to Churley-NDP so the legislative Speaker would be forced to say the party name when calling on her (an eventual compromise rendered the point moot).
Churley, who was first elected in 1990 in the old Riverdale riding, was re-elected in 1995 and again in 1999 after redistribution to the new Broadview-Greenwood riding, soon to become Toronto-Danforth.
