Andrew Cash - Politics

Politics

On October 5, 2009, Cash was nominated as the New Democratic Party candidate for the Toronto-area Davenport electoral district, in preparation for the 41st Canadian general election. At the time, the House of Commons was governed by a minority government, led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, that could fall at anytime, so this unpredictable election situation meant that Cash was a candidate for over a year and half.

When the election was called, on March 26, 2011, his main campaign issue was that Davenport's incumbent MP, Mario Silva, was not a "full-time" MP. Cash campaigned with two main slogans, "Cash for Toronto" and "Trade your Silva for Cash." Near the end of April, both The Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail newspapers started to predict that Cash might win, ending 49 years of continuous Liberal party representation for that electoral district. On May 2, he defeated Silva, becoming a caucus colleague of his former bandmate Charlie Angus, also a Member of Parliament since 2004.
