It appears City Councillor Adam Vaughan has had enough with municipal politics and is eyeing a seat in Ottawa. Sources have told Newstalk 1010’s Jerry Agar that the former broadcaster-turned politician has been wooed by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and decided to throw his hat into the ring after NDP MP Olivia Chow decided to run for mayor of the city of Toronto.
Adam Vaughan has been representing Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina since 2006.
He will be competing against NDP candidate Joe Cressy who ran Olivia Chow’s federal campaign in 2011.
Calls to Adam Vaughan’s office had not been returned by the time this article was posted.
