Toronto—Danforth (formerly Broadview—Greenwood) is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1979. It lies to the east of Downtown Toronto.
New Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jack Layton was the Member of Parliament of the riding until his death on August 22, 2011. It left the seat vacant pending a by-election on March 19, 2012. The southern part of the riding (Ward 30) is represented on Toronto City Council by councillor Paula Fletcher. The northern part of the riding (Ward 29) is represented by Mary Fragedakis.
Toronto—Danforth includes a vibrant array of ethnicities, including large Greek, Chinese, Muslim and South Asian communities.
It has long been one of the more left-leaning ridings in Toronto. Most election contests take place between the New Democratic Party and the Liberal Party. The NDP held the riding for the first nine years of its existence before Liberal Dennis Mills won the seat in 1988 and held it during the long period of Liberal dominance of the federal scene. He was unseated in 2004 by Layton, who had previously run against Mills in 1997.
The northern portion of the riding, East York, tends to lean right-of-centre, while the southern half, including Riverdale, Leslieville and Queen–Broadview Village, usually swings to the left.
Layton sought neighbourhood input for another name change to the riding. Layton's supposed choice was "East York—Danforth—Riverdale", but the name was not changed.
