Torontoist is ending the year by naming our Heroes and Villains—the very best and very worst people, places, things, and ideas that have had an influence on the city over the past twelve months.
Today, in our last installment of heroes: displays of outstanding leadership.
|Jack Layton, for giving us such great reasons to miss him.|
|Margaret Atwood, for standing up—to the Brothers Ford, and for our libraries.|
|Kristyn Wong-Tam, for speaking her mind as part of the unofficial opposition at city council.|
