Selected TPSC Superhero Profiles

DeBaeremaeker.gifThe Toronto Public Space Committee’s excellent new Municipal Elections website contains a veritable treasure trove of information about each candidate in the 2006 election (and a pretty sexy Google maps mashup). The site also features sometimes-hilarious quotations from and anecdotes about our to-be-elected officials in poster format. We have selected some gems from the site for your reading pleasure:

Ward 20: “[Adam Vaughan] is on record as wanting to gate alleyways in the ward, including Graffiti Alley, and ban the sale of art supplies to minors.”
Ward 19: “Joe [Pantalone] had no problem with the megabins TPSC fought to remove, saying, “I believe it is not appropriate for City Councillors to override the overall intent of Council’s decision to keep bins generally in place.””
Ward 19: “‘You don’t need a councillor, you need representation for your neighbourhood. You need a superhero for your neighbourhood!’ Stripping down to a Superman costume, [HiMY SYeD] jumps off the stage, through the crowd and out the door.”
