Very Funny, Toronto Centre

shapcott06.jpgYesterday’s good-natured debate between Toronto Centre candidates provided Ryerson with a few laughs, and few memorable quotes. Here’s a sample:
“I’ve spent a lot of time on the ground in Toronto Centre, and I am in favour of same-sex marriage. My leader embraces me for that position.”
– Conservative candidate Lewis Reford, getting a few giggles for an unintentional play on words
“Bill Graham isn’t here, but don’t take it personally. This is the third all-candidates meeting in a row he’s missed.”
– NDPer Michael Shapcott, pictured, at his harshest
“Well, we are called the Green Party…”
– Green Party candidate and Torontoist interviewee Chris Tindal on the issue of decriminalizing marijuana
“The Conservatives are disturbing.”
– Johan Boyden, Communist Party candidate gets the last word of the debate
