Two Candidates Declared For Toronto-Danforth Liberals

According to the T-D Liberals, Grant Gordon and Trifon Haitas have been officially declared as candidates for the Liberal nomination in the upcoming Toronto-Danforth by-election to replace Jack Layton. They'll be going up against rookie Dipper candidate Craig Scott. 2008 and 2011 candidate Andrew Lang also seems confirmed to be running, just not officially yet.

So we know who Lang is, but who are the other two?

Trifon Haitas is the former Green candidate up in Oak Ridges-Markham who seems to have become a Liberal. He's apparently a videojournalist who runs a small A/V company. Not sure what to say beyond that, you can guess what he's all about though. Seems credible.

Grant Gordon is another local CEO according to his LinkedIn profile, again another communications company. His style to getting the nomination is... well, not very effective. Can you imagine if you put this on an actual mailout? I get the idea that you want to inject some sardonic humour into politics, but there's a line. I don't know, my personal opinion. We'll see how it plays out.


  1. Do you need sigs to run? It's been a while since I tried anything.

  2. Sigs as in memberships? Yes, as far as I know you do.
