Vote 2015 – Spadina–Fort York

CPAC’s Laura Di Battista introduces us to the downtown Toronto riding of Spadina–Fort York.

Set among the iconic images of the Toronto skyline, this is arguably Canada’s tallest riding. With two political heavyweights — Liberal incumbent Adam Vaughan and NDP stalwart Olivia Chow, Jack Layton’s widow — it’s also one of the most closely watched races in the federal election. Lack of affordable downtown housing means campaigning presents unique challenges with 70 per cent of the electorate living in condos. Also running are Conservative Sabrina Zuniga and Sharon Danley for the Greens.
