News in politics

Your humble correspondent hadn’t heard of a Green Party candidate and couldn’t find the candidate on the Elections Canada site. But, as so often, he was wrong.

There does seem to be a Green Party candidate—although Elections Canada will be surprised to hear it: John A Johnson. Johnson is even campaigning, and he has said he will participate in the debates likely to be held on September 28. Of course, Johnson is vanishingly unlikely to win, but his candidacy will challenge Mike Sullivan.

Sullivan is already facing a challenge. The NDP is now trailing the Liberals in York South—Weston, according to, which says that Ahmed Hussen, the Liberal candidate, has a 62% chance of winning the riding. (The site does say that these are “riding projections” and “not polls”, and so they may not be accurate.)

  1. Thank you for your digging! Speaking of Green, do you have any idea what the plan is for the green space that is covering the UP Express between Church and King? When I saw the dirt go in, I was hoping for a community garden, but at the moment it looks like they have planted weeds. And not the fun kind. Is it too much to hope that they are wildflowers in the making for a butterfly garden?

    1. I think you are referring to the space that will not become a butterfly garden, but will allow for the transformation of little creatures. That space will be the play area for the Saint John the evangelist Catholic school. It’s been a long time in coming, but the school will be built, eventually.

      1. No, I mean the green space directly on top of the train tunnel between King and Church. A narrow grass-ish corridor.
