Spadina – Home of the political swingers

Okay, this is actually newsish:

Apparently, NDP MP Olivia Chow won’t be facing off against Tony Ianno during the upcoming campaign. But don’t despair, Trinity-Spadina voters – you’re still going to have an Ianno on the ballot; this time, it’s his wife –  Christine Innes – who will be carrying the Liberal banner. I have no idea why they switched spots, or why they waited until now to announce it, but will update this space when and if new information, or any particularly juicy rumours come to light.

(Sadly, we’re pretty sure that former Tory candidate turned renegade committee witness Sam Goldstein won’t be making a surprise cameo reappearance on the ballot – at least, not as a Conservative. A liveblogger can dream, right?)
