The Supreme Court of Canada will hear arguments today about who should be representing the riding of Etobicoke Centre on Parliament Hill.
Liberal Boris Wrzesnewskyj was defeated in the last federal election by Conservative Ted Opitz. The margin was razor-thin, and Wrzesnewskyj filed a court challenge. An investigation found some voter irregularities, and that was enough to convince the Ontario Superior Court to overturn the vote.
Optiz appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada. And Elections Canada has since come forward with information that found some of the irregularities were in fact legitimate.
The High Court will hear the case today, but a decision could take months.
