The Canadian Politician (Toronto) – Bye Elections in York-Simcoe riding in Ontario will be held today to determine representation for the riding that has been in the fold of the PC for a long time. The PC candidate, Scot Davidson, assured voters that he intends to keep the riding blue (Tory) by working hard to win the votes. The riding came into play when former cabinet minister Peter Van Loan announced his retirement after representing the riding in Ottawa for 14 years.
Davidson has focused his campaign on the importance of small business being an experienced entrepreneur himself. Being a Conservative Party stronghold, the outcome of the election will provide a sense of voters’ perception of the Conservative Ford administration as well as Justin Trudeau’s Liberals in Ottawa. Davidson is challenged by Shaun Tanaka of Sharon of the Liberal Party and Jessa McLean of Sutton of NDP.
