Laura Albanese, our MPP, will be running for the Liberals in the election this fall.
In her press release, she says, “I am honoured to accept the Liberal nomination for the riding of York South-Weston. Since being elected in 2007, I have worked hard with vigor and passion to deliver the best possible results for the people of York South-Weston. I want to champion the causes that are important to the residents of my riding, with a focus on continuing to improve our quality of life.”
The election should be a good one. Albanese will be running against Paul Ferreira, the NDP candidate who defeated her in a by-election in 2007. Albanese defeated Ferreira later that year in the regular election. The NDP has been resurgent in York South–Weston, with the recent election of Mike Sullivan. Ferreira worked on Sullivan’s campaign.
