The last time a vote was this close the Supreme Court had to be called in. Last night’s Downtown and East York final for City Idol went to three ballots and a run-off before Desmond Cole (shown here in between Boy Reporter and fellow finalist Karen Sun) was picked by a raucous crowd at Lula Lounge to be downtown Toronto’s first City Idol.
Cole will be running in Ward 20 alongside former TV broadcaster Adam Vaughan and NDP nominee/Olivia Chow assistant Helen Kennedy. Both of them were present at the event and even gave Cole encouragement and words of support.
