Roxanne James trails in Scarborough East

Liberal Zahid in first place

TORONTO October 4th, 2015 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 458 voters in the slightly redistricted Toronto federal riding of Scarborough Centre, more than 4-in-10 will vote for the Liberal candidate, Salma Zahid (43%), while just more than a third will support the incumbent, Conservative MP Roxanne James (36%). The NDP will take about one fifth of the vote (19%) and very few will vote Green (2%).

“This riding had been Liberal for almost 20 years before the Conservative majority of 2011, during which it was ably and memorably represented by John Cannis. It looks like Scarborough Centre is returning to its crimson roots,” said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
