The Toronto riding with the CNE, CN Tower, and Union Centre, Trinity-Spadina goes as far north as Dupont. It’s bordered by Dufferin Street, Dovercourt Road and Ossington Avenue to the west, and Avenue Road/Queen’s Park Circle and Yonge Street to the east.

History

NDP MPP Rosario Marchese was first elected in 1990 in the defunct riding of Fort York. In 2011, he defeated Toronto mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson by just over 1,000 votes. Trinity-Spadina is one of two Toronto ridings (along with Scarborough-Agincourt) that is in the midst of three election campaigns, with candidates running for office in municipal, provincial and federal elections.

Marchese has held this seat for the NDP for years, however if the results of the last general election are any indication, the Liberals will be pushing hard to take the riding.
