Among the lefties, Olivia Chow (http://oliviachow.ndp.ca/) is one of my favorites: passionate about what she believes in (even if I often disagree) and genuinely committed to constituent service.

This has always been a close riding, though, and Christine Innes is mounting a rematch of the last election. It's worth noting that Olivia Chow herself lost twice before winning the riding on her third attempt.

Might be interesting to see what effect the university vote has on the NDP, as the academic year should be over and students long gone at the University of Toronto by the time the May 2 election occurs.
