Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have grabbed a key Toronto riding from the New Democrats with candidate Adam Vaughan’s decisive win in the Trinity-Spadina byelection.

NDP candidate Joe Cressy was unable to keep orange a riding that former NDP MP Olivia Chow won easily in the 2011 general election.

Conservative candidate Benjamin Sharma was a distant third place, just ahead of Green Party candidate Camille Labchuk.

Vaughan, who resigned his seat on Toronto Council in May shortly after gaining the Liberal nomination in Trinity-Spadina, was ahead all night with more than 50% of the popular vote at deadline.
