After failed bids in the elections of 1967 and 1971, Bradley was first elected to the Ontario legislature in the 1977 election in the riding of St. Catharines, and has served as MPP for that riding since that time.

When the Liberals came to power under David Peterson following the 1985 election, Bradley became Minister of the Environment and held that position until the Liberals were defeated in the 1990 election.

Elston resigned as interim leader to run in the 1992 Ontario Liberal Leadership Convention, and Bradley became interim leader of the party and interim Leader of the Opposition from November 1991 until the election of Lyn McLeod in February 1992. He remained an opposition stalwart until the Liberals won the 2003 election under Dalton McGuinty.
