Institutions and people who, under attack, decided to keep going.
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 12 months. From December 10 to 19, we’ll unveil the nominees, grouped by category. Vote for your favourites from each batch, every single day! On December 19 and 20 the winners from each category go head-to-head in the final round of voting, and on December 21, we will reveal your choices for Toronto’s Superhero and Supervillain of the year.

Grace under fire.
Staying professional, even when the mayor couldn’t.
Speaking up when she didn’t need to.
Keeping the waterfront interesting, and keeping his dream alive.
