Well official numbers from Elections Ontario show Liberal Eric Hoskins with almost 48 percent of the vote to PC Sue-Ann Levy’s nearly 29 percent.
I just returned from reporting on the St. Paul’s byelection where I was stationed at Levy’s camp and my colleague Brian Baker was at Liberal Eric Hoskins party. It was a thrilling campaign to watch and follow.

Our story has been filed and should be up on the website for the paper I work for, the Town Crier.

Clockwise from the top left are: PC Sue-Ann Levy, NDP Julian Heller, Green Party Chris Chopik, Liberal Eric Hoskins.

There is September 17 byelection to choose a new provincial rep for the riding of St. Paul’s.
The newspaper I write for, The Town Crier, is holding an all candidates debate the week before the vote.
It will be held Sept. 10 from 7-9 pm at Sunderland Hall at the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto. You will find it 175 St. Clair Ave. West, near the southwest corner of Avenue Rd. and St. Clair.
Firstly, those who live in the diverse riding that stretches roughly from Beltline to Dupont and Winona to Bayview should come and hear what the political players have to say. Trust me it will be a very heated debate.
We have invited:
PC candidate Sue-Ann Levy, who is on leave as a city hall columnist with the Toronto Sun.
Liberal activist Dr. Eric Hoskins, who will try and keep the seat red after former MPP Michael Bryant stepped down to take a position as chief executive officer of Invest Toronto.
Lawyer Julian Heller of the New Democratic Party.
Real Estate agent Chris Chopik of the Green Party.
Five other candidates will also be in attendance.
I will be there and so will my Town Crier colleagues including editor Eric McMillan, who will be moderating.
Besides attending the Sept. 10 debate it’s important to vote in the advance polls or on byelection day Sept. 17.
