NDP wins by-election (ROB FERGUSON AND ROBERT BENZIE, 9/15/06, Toronto Star)

Liberal attacks on the NDP's Cheri DiNovo backfired yesterday as voters chose the controversial United Church minister in the bitterly contested Parkdale-High Park by-election.

The riding was considered a safe Liberal seat for the decade it was held by former education minister Gerard Kennedy, but that changed during a nasty month-long campaign.

Jubilant New Democrats said voters showed Premier Dalton McGuinty's majority Liberals are on the run heading into the next provincial election in 13 months.

Too much to hope they go the way of the post-Mulroney Tories.
