In the Canadian general election of 2000, she ran in Haliburton--Victoria--Brock for the federal Progressive Conservative Party, but finished behind Liberal John O'Reilly and Canadian Alliance candidate Pat Dunn in a close, three-way race. From 2000 to 2003, she worked as an assistant to Progressive Conservative SenatorConsiglio DiNino.
Scott was elected to the Ontario parliament in the 2003 provincial election, defeating Liberal candidate Jason Ward by over 7000 votes (Earl Manners of the NDP finished third). The Conservatives won only 24 seats (out of 103) in this election, and Scott was appointed opposition critic for Training, Colleges and Universities.
Scott is generally regarded as being on the moderate wing of her party. In 2004, she supported John Tory in his successful bid for the leadership of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.
