Retiring PC MPP Frank Klees was re-elected with just under 4,000 votes here in 2011, his fifth straight win in a York-based riding. While the area generally favours the Progressive Conservatives, riding boundaries in north York have changed regularly over the years – this area was represented by Liberal MPP Greg Sorbara from 2003 to 2007, when it was Vaughan-King-Aurora.
