Toronto Mayoral Election

It was actually pretty damm close.

Edit: I'm an idiot it's his brother, reading fail by me.

Quote:
John Tory was elected Toronto’s next mayor Monday, beating out Doug Ford by a 6% margin. Tory claimed more than 40% of the vote while Ford took in about 34%. Olivia Chow came in third place with just over 23%.

Voter turnout was up significantly from the 2010 election. Approximately 60% of eligible voters came out to cast ballots — about 980,000 people in total. That’s a rise of more than 150,000 people.

Yes but technically Rob Ford is still Progressive Conservative

That's great news, glad to see some parts of this country still have the "right" head on their shoulders. Even better that it's the largest populous city in Canada.

Now we wait for the federal elections....
