Hodgson was first elected to the Ontario legislature in a 1994 by-election, defeating Liberal candidate Sharon McCrae by fewer than 2,000 votes in the rural riding of Victora--Haliburton, north of Toronto. This by-election was extremely bitter, and there were many accusations that Hodgson's team appealed to homophobic prejudice in the region to put their candidate over the top. (At the time of the by-election, the Liberal Party supported the NDP government's plans to provide increased social benefits for same-sex couples. They reversed their position after Hodgson's victory, amid fears that the issue had cost them rural support. This reversal in policy would later cost the party dearly.) 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated like the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal. // Events January Bill Clinton January 1 : North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) goes into effect. ...
