History

Liberal Steven Del Duca was elected in a 2012 by-election over PC candidate Tony Genco by just under 6,000 votes. He replaced the retiring Greg Sorbara, who had held a seat in the York area since 1985, winning in 2011 by over 10,000 votes.

By the numbers

Virtually every riding in York can be considered suburban in the built-form sense, but Vaughan is especially so. 63.7% of people over 15 were married in 2011 (the highest number in province), while the average household size of 3.5 is the second-largest in Ontario.
