Prig­gish on Park­dale


As a white male con­ser­va­tive I was in­ter­ested to learn from your elec­tion is­sue that Park­dale-High Park has the high­est con­cen­tra­tion of white peo­ple of any rid­ing in the city. This must be why in the 40 years I have lived here, my rid­ing has been mostly NDP, with oc­ca­sional Lib­eral suc­cess. It got so bad that 15 years ago I gave up vot­ing for the Con­ser­va­tive can­di­date and have voted for the Lib­er­als as the lesser of two evils. The one ex­cep­tion was the re­cent pro­vin­cial elec­tion, when I voted for Doug Ford and my vote put the Tory can­di­date ahead of the Green Party. I guess if I want to live in a Con­ser­va­tive rid­ing, I will have to move to one that is more racially di­verse, such as Eto­bi­coke North.
