Despite the intense pre-election campaign going on in the Toronto Centre riding, Brian Chang still visited the Regent Park this Friday morning to greet potential voters. They need “someone who is ready to bring people to the table and engage in these tough conversations,” Chang said.

The winner in Monday’s federal election campaign in Toronto Centre says he ran because he was inspired by constituents in his riding. Liberal Bill Morneau, now the MP for Toronto-Centre, celebrated his victory Monday night at the Paint Box Bistro, in Regent Park. About 100 supporters attended the reception. He attracted over 57 per cent of the votes, according to the CBC Canada Votes website, while his nearest competitor, NDP candidate Linda McQuaig captured nearly 27 per cent.
The re-elected MPP for Toronto Centre views his win Thursday night not as a victory, but as public service. Liberal Glen Murray handily reclaimed the riding with 25,075 votes in the provincial vote. That was over twice the number earned by his closest competitor, NDP candidate Cathy Crowe who polled 11,496 votes.
The Liberal party’s reign continues in Toronto Central, but for the newcomer PC candidate it’s about the long haul. The Liberal incumbent Glen Murray defeated Progressive Conservative Martin Abell in the provincial election, Thursday night, in Toronto Centre.
“The leadership is part of the renewal process, which I think everyone has to consider what’s in the best interest of the party and the country,” Rae said, “and I want to reflect on that before making any decisions.”
Four candidates in the Toronto-Centre riding can agree on one thing: housing should be accessible and affordable.
