David Crombie Endorses Smitherman

In what is likely to be the last major endorsement of this campaign season, Toronto’s “tiny, perfect mayor” is backing George Smitherman for that same position. Mayor from 1972-1978, Crombie presided over a period of progressive urban development that took many of its cues from thinkers such as Jane Jacobs. His endorsement is sure to disappoint the Pantalone camp, which is modelled on the same progressive approach to municipal politics.
