Don't be fooled by the plastic floral arrangement on Olivia Chow's bicycle basket. The NDP MP for Trinity-Spadina's a bulldog on behalf of the city, refugee rights and social services, and can most easily be spotted at the head of local demos of all kinds. The effervescent Chow has pushed defiant feds for stable TTC cash and demanded an audit of the T.O.-hostile Port Authority. She also urges dumping the plan to spend $16 billion on the F-35 fighter jet to fund health and childcare, and wants U.S. war resisters to be able to stay in Canada. And to top it off, she was a federal G20 hero, fighting tenaciously for a policing probe.
