Heroes and Villains of 2015: Hall of Villains

The people, places, things, and ideas that made our city a worse place in 2015.

Before we plunge into 2016, it’s time to reflect on the year that was. In our Hall of Villains, we honour the people, places, things, and ideas that made Toronto a worse place in 2015. Maybe an individual or a group shared their awful worldview? Maybe they failed to meet the standards you set for them. Or maybe you just don’t like the cut of their jib. That works too. Read through our nominees below, and cast your ballot for the candidate that you think deserves the title Supervillain of the Year. Voting will be open until Thursday, January 7 at midnight.

Your Superhero and Supervillain of the year will be announced at noon on January 8.
