Olivia Chow

Liberals have taken previous NDP and Conservative strongholds across the city.
Watching Liberal incumbent Adam Vaughan move from door to door, signs stacked under his arm, his choices seem counterintuitive. He's going up to homes that already have NDP candidate Olivia Chow's name attached to the front fence.
Olivia Chow and Adam Vaughan are sniping at each other's records in race to represent progressive battleground.

Sadly, he is not. Essentially, we became the human face of a man whose ideals are wrong for Toronto and Torontonians. We should have known better. I voted for Tory but I certainly did not endorse a second-class citizenship for myself. Why is he endorsing public policies that Torontonians, for the most part, do not want?

If refusing to reappoint Councillor Michael Thompson, the lone black member of the Toronto Police board, was not enough, Mayor John Tory voted to endorse the carding policy. I am disappointed and we should all be outraged.
