Checking in on the St. Paul's by-election

A quick check, that is! First, here's a little bit of star power showing up to campaign for Dr. Eric Hoskins in the upcoming Ontario St. Paul's riding provincial by-election then a bit more below.

Chantal Kreviazuk:

Raine Maida:

Also noted, some early feedback on the HST issue from a Hoskins campaigner. Here:
Campaigning for @drerichoskins. People very supportive of #HST once mistruths are dispelled.
And here:
Canvassing for @drerichoskins. People coming around to the #HST. People say cuts to health care and education under cons biggest concern
With recent media coverage highlighting the Harper government's role in pushing the HST, for e.g., "Feds firmly behind HST: Duncan," it's difficult to see how the provincial Conservative cousins can credibly distance themselves from it. Indications above seem good.

Election day is September 17th, creeping up, will try to check back in on this one.
