So, lots of work to be done in the last week and a half. Particularly here in Parkdale-High Park:
The survey suggests the Liberals would win Parkdale-High Park, an NDP stronghold for dynamo Cheri Di Novo, but lose St. Catharines, a seat held since 1977 by popular Grit Jim Bradley. As well, it forecasts the Conservatives picking up Liberal-held Kitchener-Conestoga and Kitchener Centre, but falling short in Tory Elizabeth Witmer’s long-time riding of Kitchener-Waterloo. And McGuinty himself is shown as only slightly ahead in his home riding of Ottawa South, one of the most reliably Liberal ridings in the province.Now that is interesting. I wouldn't characterize this riding as an NDP stronghold, it's more like a swing riding if you look at the history. And as the federal election showed us, you can't take anything for granted these days. (See last night's post on the Parkdale-High Park race, by the way, on the fact checking of Cheri Di Novo's debate claims.)
“There are a few anomalies,” Bozinoff said.
Have a great day out there, all you campaigners!
