A packed house of supporters at the Queen Victoria pub on Midland Avenue cheered the news of Liberal candidate Soo Wong’s victory Oct. 6 in Scarborough-Agincourt.
Scarborough-Agincourt has 3 Asian MPP candidates in the upcoming Ontario Provincial election. Lots of Chinese immigrants are encouraged to come out and volunteer in canvassing teams.
Long-time Scarborough-Agincourt MPP Gerry Phillips has declared he is leaving his position — for good. With Phillips retiring, the premier and his party are losing an important general ahead of the looming Oct. 6 provincial election fight.
Scarborough-Agincourt MPP Gerry Phillips announced his retirement on March 25. “I love the job, it is very rewarding,” he said. “But having to commit to another four years in office entails a lot of time and effort. I am not prepared to make that kind of commitment.”
