Good luck with the Canadian Tories trying to make inroads in Toronto, talk about an uphill climb. But the Tories do seem to be gaining support outside Ontario and Quebec.

While I'd be the first to concede Toronto's inner core will always be a write-off, there are considerably more suburban districts - especially if you also take in, as Kenney is, those immediately beyond the City's municipal boundaries - which we lost in relatively close races the last 2 times out - including many which we held well within living memory.
A good example, within Toronto proper, is Etobicoke Center which our current Ambassador to Washington, Michael Wilson, held from 1979-93.
It's current Liberal MP (since 2004) Borys Wrzesnewskyj is plainly a 'professional ethnic', known anti-Semitic, political lightweight.
All winning back this one would take is a reasonably high profile candidate & the Party to make doing so a bit more of a priority than it did in the last 2 elections.
Money would be absolutely no problem & the guy's a veritable 'sitting duck' !
