Marchese has an incredible machine. He'll hold the riding easily for the NDP.

If all goes well, I could see Marchese and the New Democrats geting over 60% in Trinity-Spadina.

Since the Liberals nominated Albert Koehl last night, I think they have a good chance of winning the riding. Koehl's the perfect man to take on a New Democrat. He's been a prosecutor with the Ministry of the Environment and an investigator of human rights violations in Guatemala for the U.N. With NDP support at low ebb, this could be one of the ridings they lose next time around.

Trinity-Spadina is one of the few ridings were redistribution actually helped an NDP incumbent. Marchese takes in a lot of good polls from surrounding ridings. He beat Bob Wong last time, and he'll beat Albert Koehl this time - easily.

Albert Koehl, the the right type of candidate to take on the NDP in this riding and to beat the incumbent member. Albert has a strong campaign team and support from youth. He also has the kind of background that might lead some NDP or even Tory supporters to back him.

Since the liberal candidate is completely unknown, and since Rosario Marchese has a record in the legislature as a powerful speaker and since he has the second largest party membership and funds in the kitty as well as pledged, he will certainly be returned with an impressive margin.

Albert who? In an election which will be a referendum on the Tories voters will stick with and go to the high profile and popular Marchese in what will be one of the largest NDP pluralities in Toronto
04/05/99 Email:
The politically inexperienced Liberal candidate Albert Koehl does not have a glimmer of hope of beating the politically astute New Democrat Rosario Marchese.

With Olivia Chow's near-win in '97, Ontario's federal NDP ground zero. The sole provincial incumbent running is NDP; even the non-NDP ridings contribute their strongest NDP segments. Translation: Marchese's ba-ack.

Toronto 'tough country' for Conservatives by John Barber
In Trinity-Spadina, MPP Rosario Marchese enjoys the safest NDP seat in the province.

It's Rosario's world ... and his to lose by Jim Rankin
05/19/99 John Mackay Email: jmackay@uts.oise.utoronto.ca
The threat posed by the completely unknown Albert Koehl to Rosario Marchese, a well-known figurehead in the community, is minimal. The riding has a strong New Democratic history and many people are very concerned about social issues.
05/23/99 Email:
The Liberals are running a extremely weak campaign. Dundas & Spadina, in the heart of Chinatown, there are no Liberal signs. This breaks from a 100 years tradition of Liberal support by the Chinese community.
