Campaign Politics - Vote 2015 – Etobicoke Centre


Toronto’s Etobicoke Centre had the distinction of being the riding with the closest race in 2011. So close that it ended up going to the Supreme Court to determine the eventual winner, Conservative Ted Opitz.

CPAC’s Laura Di Battista introduces us to Opitz who is again running against his 2011 Liberal opponent, Borys Wrzesnewskyj. In this prosperous riding, the economy and traffic and infrastructure are key issues. They are also concerned about the increased number of night flights landing in close proximity at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. Rounding out those who are campaigning hard are the NDP’s Tanya De Mello, the Green party's Shawn Rizvi, and Rob Wolvin who is running for the Progressive Canadian Party.
