Marco Mendicino has won the Liberal nomination for the Eglinton-Lawrence riding.
The suburban Toronto riding is currently held by federal Finance Minister Joe Oliver.
In his speech to the party faithful before the vote, Mendicino congratulated Adams for having the “courage” to cross the floor from the Conservatives to Liberals in February, but took a swipe at her, saying he and his family are longtime residents in the riding.
“Our life is in this riding,” he said as raucous cheers of “Marco, Marco” broke out from the audience
CBC – Former Tory Eve Adams has failed in her bid to win the Liberal nomination in Finance Minister Joe Oliver’s Toronto riding.
The sitting MP lost to Marco Mendicino, the only other contender for the Liberal nod in Eglinton-Lawrence, in a hotly contested race.
