The federal election that few seem to have an appetite for is officially under way, and the NDP, in Vaughan, is the only one of the major parties in Vaughan Today‘s coverage area not to have a candidate out of the gate.

All three top parties in Thornhill were ready to start campaigning when the word was given. Peter Kent, the incumbent Conservative candidate, will face competition from Karen Mock (Liberal) and Simon Strelchik (NDP).
