Yesterday, Torontoist attended a Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina candidates meeting at the University of Toronto. Present were Adam Vaughan, Desmond Cole, Chris Ouellette, and Doug Lowry.
Helen Kennedy was unable to make the it due to an illness that is apparently affecting every other candidate as well, Trinfluenza.
Topics covered ranged from Chris Ouellette’s “blanket the city with streetcar rights-of-way” to the “…because you’re a conservative, Doug Lowry!” bomb dropped by Adam Vaughan. Desmond Cole’s “lower the voting age to 16” resonated strongly with the youthful crowd, while Lowry didn’t really say anything at all.
The most common question for the candidates: “I live in Scarborough, eh?”
