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.

Today is the last chance to cast your ballot in an advance poll.
