Mike Sullivan has won the York South–Weston riding.
Sullivan’s victory is a tremendous upset. His nearest opponent was the Liberal incumbent, Alan Tonks. In the 2008 election, Tonks bested Sullivan by almost 20%, and several analysts had thought Tonks would win again.
The buoyant NDP must have helped Mike Sullivan, but he fought a hard campaign starting long before the election was called. He has been an active and visible community member for several years, as the chair of the Clean Train Coalition and as an engaged citizen.
As of 11 pm, Sullivan has 41% of the vote; Tonks has 32%. Jilian Saweczko, Conservative, has 24%. Sonny Day, who ran for the Greens, pulled in only 3%.
