A battle between two Toronto city councillors is heating up ahead of next week’s provincial byelection in Etobicoke-Lakeshore.
Peter Milczyn the Liberal candidate running in the riding has filed a formal complaint to the city’s integrity commissioner and the lobbyist registrar over an issue with a photo-op by PC rival Doug Holyday.
Holyday appeared with PC Leader Tim Hudak next to a city-contracted garbage truck on Wednesday with Hudak touting Holyday’s role in privatizing west side garbage collection.
Milczyn has asked the integrity commissioner to investigate whether the truck could be a contribution from a lobbyist or a gift and whether it violates the city’s policy against using a city resource during an election.
Responding to Milczyn’s complaint, Holyday calls it “a desperate move by desperate people” and an attempt to distract voters from Liberal government scandals.
A Forum Reseaarch Polls released on Wednesday puts the Progressive Conservatives well ahead in Etobicoke as well as in former premier Dalton McGuinty’s Ottawa riding.
