Doyle was elected to the Ontario legislature in the Hamilton-area riding of Wentworth East in the 1995 provincial election, defeating Liberal Shirley Collins and incumbent New Democrat Mark Morrow by a plurality of about 3,606 votes. He served for the next four years as a backbench supporter of Mike Harris's government. He did not play a major role in parliament, though he stood in as speaker of the assembly from September 26 to October 2, 1996, after the resignation of Al McLean.
Doyle supported amalgamating the city of Hamilton, and co-chaired a series of provincial consultations on the Canada Pension Plan in 1996. He did not seek re-election in 1999.
