The Liberal-NDP wars of 2013

Checking in on the Toronto Centre and Bourassa by-elections

To Toronto Centre, where we’ve got the NDP candidate accusing the Liberal candidate of avoiding debates, a picture of the NDP candidate shaking hands with Hugo Chavez and this picture of an old cellphone meant to demonstrate how long it has been since the Liberal candidate last lived in Toronto.

To Bourassa, where the NDP is accusing the Liberal candidate of inappropriately accepting an allowance and the Liberals are fretting about divisive politics.

And to the Internet, where the NDP leader is being accused of hypocrisy in regards to his choice of air travel seating.

The November 25 by-elections are now just 12 days away.
