Political history

Liberal David Zimmer, who has held the riding since 2003, prevailed in the 2011 election by beating Vince Agovino of the Progressive Conservatives.

Zimmer won by 5,608 votes over Progressive Conservative David Shiner, currently a Toronto councillor, in the 2007 election.

In 2003 Zimmer unseated PC incumbent David Young. Young took the redistributed Willowdale riding in 1999, defeating Liberal Fahimeh Mortazavi with 50 per cent of the vote.

When the old riding of Willowdale was created in 1987, Liberal Gino Matrundola defeated Tory Charles Harnick. Harnick won the electoral rematch in 1990 and was re-elected in 1995. He did not stand for re-election after the 1999 redistribution.
