Mayor Miller was in Etobicoke yesterday, trying to convince the people who regularly vote in Ford, Holyday, Nunziata, et al. that new taxes are a necessity. It went about as well as you’d expect.
In an effort to boost turnout, Elections Ontario has put some advance polls in supermarkets. We hoped to write something sarcastic, but upon further reflection, this is a really good idea.
John Tory has essentially killed his public-funding-of-faith-based-schools proposal, promising to hold a (sure to fail) free vote on it if elected. Apparently, he was convinced to change his mind by a woman who approached him after a rally. That and, you know, the fact that his campaign had imploded.
It wasn’t just you. Nuit Blanche had too many people this year, and the all-night TTC service sucked. The Mayor and TTC Chair said so themselves.
And some local sports team probably lost some game.
