Ottawa media last night mistakenly proclaimed the Liberal Party as victors once again in a Toronto byelection. “A win’s a win,” said Paul Wells, pundit and Trudeau author, while one news agency formerly owned by the Toronto Star published a now-deleted headline announcing a Liberal win before all ballots were counted.

“The Trudeau team will show new spring in its step as it prepares to get, once more, off the ropes and back in the fray,” Wells wrote Substack subscribers. He declared longtime Liberal aide Leslie Church “the new Liberal MP for Toronto-St. Paul’s.”

“Church’s margin of victory over a Conservative candidate bounced around 10 points all Monday night,” wrote Wells. The commentary was published before all returns were in.
