Toronto-Danforth 2008 results

Well, we beat the Conservatives and we passed the magic 10% mark at which a portion of campaign expenses are reimbursed.

Final results rounded to the nearest percent:

Jack Layton NDP 45%
Andrew Lang Liberal 30%
Sharon Howarth Green 13%
Christina Perreault Conservative 12%
Marie Crawford Animal Alliance 0%
John Richardson Independent 0%
Marcell Rodden Marxist-Leninist 0%
Bahman Yazdanfar Canadian Action 0%

Nationally, Green Party support has gone up by over 50% since the last election. Locally, our support has risen over 80%. Thanks to a doubling of contributions, we were able to double the amount literature distributed, double the number of signs placed, double our volunteer and supporter lists, and nearly double our share of the votes.
