EOJ, those are right on concerns, I'm with you on both.
That said, the groundswell of rage didn't occur. By now we're all aware that the Liebrals won the day. Now I'd like to hear the comments as to why.



keep in mind the liberals only one a riding in toronto one which was not even part of the last ontario pc victory in 1999 , so its got a very liberal recent history . i don't think this win means that much in the long run as even dion won 2 by-elections in toronto if you remember . st pauls is also a very affulent riding so maybe that type wasn't as bothered about paying more tax as a middle class riding would of been .

Safe Liberal riding votes Liberal. Well Hudak isn't exactly going to win a landslide if an election was held today, and it showed in the by-election. That said Ms. Levy did manage to increase the PC % of the vote by a few points. This election was a lot of noise about nothing. When the Tories win a marginal riding back from the Grits in a by-election, I'll start getting excited

St. Paul's is one of those ridings that would only turn blue in the event of a huge landslide. IN 1995, when the PC's had a great campaign and seemed to sweep the province it was St. Paul's that went their way, however by the time 1999 rolled around and the popularity of the Harris government was decreased and St. Paul's was lost.
