NDP Candidate Craig Scott Wins Toronto-Danforth By-Election

Scott will serve as MP in the seat held by Jack Layton until his death last year.

Scott on the campaign trail last month.

As expected by most observers, NDP candidate Craig Scott has won the riding of Toronto-Danforth in a by-election held today. Scott will succeed the late Jack Layton, who served as MP for the riding from 2004–2011. With 110 out of 196 polls reporting so far, Scott has garnered 59 per cent of the vote. Liberal Grant Gordon has 29 per cent of the vote, and already conceded in a speech a few minutes ago; Conservative Andrew Keyes and Green Party candidate Adriana Mugnatto-Hamu each have 5 per cent of the vote. Scott’s victory is in the range of Jack Layton’s last win—he received 60.8 per cent of the vote in the 2011 general election.

More to come.
