1999 Ontario general election
An Ontario general election was held on June 3, 1999, to elect members of the 37th Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, Canada. The governing Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, led by Premier Mike Harris, was re-elected to a second majority government, it was the first election in which the Legislative Assembly of Ontario had a reduced number of seats. The province's riding boundaries were different from those used in federal elections. In the 1999 election, for the first time, provincial riding boundaries were redrawn to match federal ridings, resulting in 27 fewer seats — and 27 fewer Members of Provincial Parliament — in the legislature. Notably, in a number of ridings this resulted in incumbent MPPs directly facing each other in the new seats. According to a poll released on the eve of the election, the Liberal Party entered the campaign with a lead over the Progressive Conservatives; this poll's accuracy was disputed by many and Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty cast doubt on it: noting that most polling companies claim to be accurate 19 times out of 20, he suggested that this might have been the 20th.
Subsequent polls taken in the early period of the campaign showed the Progressive Conservatives with a commanding lead over the Liberals, in a manner more consistent with pre-election numbers. Harris' government had delivered large tax cuts and reduced the deficit, but they had severely cut spending in the process, they had the support of the legendary Tory political machine, bolstered by a group of American experts imported from the United States' Republican Party. They targeted Dalton McGuinty as inexperienced, attacked him for lacking a clear vision; this was successful due to McGuinty having a reputation for being uncomfortable and stiff in the media. During the leader's debates, McGuinty had a poor performance, being unable to explain his party's platform and being compared to fictional serial killer Norman Bates by NDP leader Howard Hampton; the extensive use of attack ads and wedge issues by the Tories was a new development in Canadian politics, some commentators worried the election process was becoming Americanized.
The third major party, the Ontario New Democratic Party led by Howard Hampton, spent much the campaign battling the memory of Bob Rae's unpopular government in the early 1990s. Despite Hampton's efforts to reach out to labour, the NDP were weakened as the major unions deserted them in favour of the Liberals, hoping to defeat the Tories by strategic voting; the province was enjoying strong economic growth at the time which vindicated the Conservatives' deficit-cutting measures in the public. The Liberal Party managed to recover some support late in the campaign, but it was not enough and the Tories were re-elected with a second consecutive majority government. Notes: No fewer than 27 candidates affiliated with the Communist Party of Canada - Marxist-Leninist contested this election as independents; these candidates won a total of 7,194 votes. The Reform Association of Ontario fielded one candidate. Three independent candidates were members of the Humanist Party of Ontario, it is possible that some independent candidates were members of these or other unregistered parties.

A large, but business area of Toronto Centre—Rosedale between University Avenue and Yonge St. was given to the riding. This region tends to support the Liberals; the Toronto Islands were added to the riding from Toronto Centre—Rosedale. This area is strongly NDP and has a activist population that provides many campaign workers for the New Democrats; the riding was created in 1987 from Trinity and Spadina, smaller parts of Toronto Centre—Rosedale and Parkdale—High Park. It consisted of the part of the City of Toronto bounded on the south by Toronto Harbour, on the east by Avenue Road, Queen's Park Crescent West, University Avenue and York Street, on the west and north by a line drawn from the harbour north along Spencer Avenue, east along the Gardiner Expressway, north along Atlantic Avenue, southeast along the Canadian National Railway line, north along Dovercourt Road, east along Bloor Street West, north along Ossington Avenue, east along the Canadian Pacific Railway line to Avenue Road.

This riding has elected the following members of the House of Commons of Canada: The seat became vacant on March 12, 2014 when Olivia Chow resigned in order to run in the Toronto mayoral election; the 2011 election was not the expected close race between the incumbent NDP MP Olivia Chow and Liberal candidate, Toronto lawyer Christine Innes, that some observers predicted. The Liberals did not make gains here, which were anticipated by those who believed that the number of condominiums along the Toronto waterfront would bring in more centrist and right leaning voters.
A third battle between NDP challenger Olivia Chow and longtime Liberal incumbent Tony Ianno took place in the 2006 election. Ianno's narrow victory over Chow in 2004 had surprised most observers. After the writ was dropped for the federal election, Chow resigned her City Hall seat and vowed not to return to her previous job as municipal councillor. Chow ran a more disciplined campaign than in 2004, focusing on winning her own seat rather than lending her support to the national campaign of her husband, NDP leader Jack Layton. Ianno suffered from the broader decline in Liberal fortunes across Canada losing to Chow by nearly six percentage points, the largest margin of victory in any of their three electoral encounters; the strongest areas for the NDP were the Annex, Seaton Village, the University of Toronto area, Sussex-Ulster and Kensington Market.
