During the 2021 federal election campaign, political leaders spent significant amounts of time in the greater Toronto area seeking support for local candidates and securing seats in what experts have identified as a crucial region in Canada. But if you go to vote, there are still a number of rides where anything can happen.

This ride covers the heart of downtown Toronto, including areas like Regent Park, St. James Town, and Church and Wellesley.

The Toronto Center battle will be a rematch of the 2020 by-election, with liberal incumbent Marci Ien facing green leader Annamie Paul. Prior to 2020, riding was represented by Liberal MP and Treasury Secretary Bill Morneau, who stepped down after admitting accepting gifts and affiliations with the WE Charity.

This horseback ride covers a good chunk of downtown Toronto including Deer Park, Davisville Village and Humewood Cedarvale, as well as part of Forest Hill.

Liberal candidate Carolyn Bennet, who has been riding since 1997 when it was previously simply known as “St. Paul’s « hopes to keep their place. Sidney Coles, the NDP horse riding candidate, has resigned after anti-Semitic social media posts were discovered. Your name will remain on the ballot.

This horseback ride covers the town of Milton and a northern part of Burlington and is located on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment.

In 2019, liberal Adam van Koeverden, a former Olympian, beat Conservative incumbent Lisa Raitt, who had been a MP for the region since 2008. It was van Koeverden’s first year in politics and he hopes to keep his seat.

This street is in the northeast corner of Mississauga and is roughly bordered by Eglington Avenue East to the south, the Brampton and Mississauga border to the north, Creditview Road to the west, and the Toronto and Mississauga border to the east.

Incumbent Liberal MP Navdeep Bains, who won the seat in 2015 and 2019, is not running this year. After Bains won the last general election with 57 percent of the vote, he is still strongly represented in the equestrian sport. While his absence opens up opportunities for potential postponement, experts say Bains’ legacy could continue to affect election day results.

This downtown ride covers parts of the western end of Toronto, including neighborhoods like Fairbank, Oakwood-Vaughan, Dovercourt Village, Bloordale Village, and Corso Italia.

Davenport was a Liberal stronghold for about 50 years before an NDP candidate won the seat during the 2011 orange wave. In 2015, the liberal candidate Julie Dzerowicz stole back riding and was re-elected in 2019. She is running again this year.

This ride consists of part of the city of Oshawa north of Taunton Road West and Taunton Road East, Scugog Parish and part of Clarington Parish.

Conservative leader Erin O’Toole hopes to recapture his seat on election day. The Riding has voted for the Conservative Party since 2006. O’Toole first won his seat in a by-election in 2012 and was then elected by his voters in the following two federal elections.

This street is east of downtown Toronto and is bordered by the Don River to the west, Taylor Creek to the north, and Coxwell Boulevard and Coxwell Avenue to the east.

Former NDP leader Jack Layton held this race from 2004 to 2011. The NDP held out the race until the 2015 election when Liberal MP Julie Dabrusin won by no more than 1,206 votes against incumbent Craig Scott. Dabrusin won again in 2019 and hopes to keep the seat for a third term.

This horseback ride spans the entire University of Toronto campus plus a number of high income neighborhoods like Rosedale and Yorkville.

Riding was first established in 2015 and has been hosted by the liberal Chrystia Freeland ever since. Freeland took over the post of Canadian Finance Minister in August 2020 and has been Deputy Prime Minister since November 2019. She hopes to recapture her seat on September 20th.

Horseback riding is part of the city of Toronto and its boundaries are Steeles Avenue West to the north, Humber River to the east, Dixon Road to the south, and Renforth Drive to the west.

Etobicoke North has been a liberal stronghold since 1988. Since 2008 incumbent Kirsty Duncan, who has been Deputy Government Representative since November 2019, has held the seat. In the last general election she won with 61.4 percent of the vote.

The horseback riding is part of the city of Toronto, with boundaries along Eglinton Avenue West, Markham Road, and Victoria Park Avenue.

Liberal Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Secretary Bill Blair is hoping to keep his seat for a second term, but Scarborough-Southwest voyage has historically tipped between Liberals and the NDP. Blair, a former Toronto Police Chief, has been a major player in federal policy regarding gun violence in the city.

Conservative MP Peter Kent, who has held the horse riding since 2008, is not competing this year. He will be replaced by Melissa Lantsman, who has held senior positions in national campaigns for more than 10 years but has never held an elected position.

The boundaries of this Toronto horseback riding are roughly along Mill Street, Esplanade, Bay Street to the east, Dundas Street to the north, Dufferin Street and Dovercourt Road to the west.

Incumbent Adam Vaughan announced in early August that he would no longer stand for election. Vaughan, a former Toronto city councilor, won his first general election in 2015, beating Olivia Chow of the NDP. In 2019 he won again. Liberal candidate Kevin Vuong is running for his place but was asked last week to suspend his campaign over reports of 2019 sexual assault charges that were later withdrawn. Last weekend, the Liberal Party said that if Vuong is elected, Vuong will no longer run under its party banner and will not sit with its faction. He is running against Norm Di Pasquale, Trustee of the Toronto Catholic School for Station 9.

The North York drive of Don Valley East is between Leslie Street, Victoria Park Avenue and Highway 401.

Liberal Michael Coteau, who lost to second place behind Stephen Del Duca in his bid to lead the Ontario party in Queen’s Park, is now running for a seat in parliament. While Coteau represents the incumbent party, he is also running against an incumbent. Yasmin Ratansi won as a member of the Liberal Party in 2019 but left the group after it was revealed that she had given her sister a job in her constituency office. Ratansi runs as an independent this year. It won in 2019 with 59.8 percent of the vote.
