Trinity-Spadina Byelection: Here Are Your Candidates

Our interviews with the NDP, Green Party, and Liberal contenders.

T Sp

Today, Trinity-Spadina residents will once again head to the polls—this time, to elect a successor to Olivia Chow, who resigned her federal seat in March to run in Toronto’s mayoral election. Major candidates looking to fill her shoes include the NDP’s Joe Cressy, the Green Party’s Camille Labchuk, and the Liberal Party’s Adam Vaughan.

We sat down with each of them ahead of the byelection to discuss five important federal issues, including oilsands production in Alberta, federal support for cities, and electoral reform. (We did request an interview with Conservative candidate Benjamin Sharma, but received no reply.)

Here’s what they had to say:



Joe Cressy: New Democratic Party

    It’s funny how the conservatives don’t even try in some ridings. But, when a plank of your platform is deriding cities, why put on the pretense?

      They’ve cast their lot with the 905.

        By the looks of things, more the 519 and the 705.
