2012 Villain Nominees: Cityscape

The people, places, things, and ideas that are undermining the texture of the city—our neighbourhoods, transportation, and sense of place.


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.

Causing injury, closing streets, and sparking lawsuits.

Lending his name to an ugly, failing project.


Extreme NIMBYism

Taking the fear of change to irrational heights.
  Casino Pressure

  Bike Lane Fiascos
