Heroes and Villains 2011:
Villains—The Growing Threats

Torontoist is ending the year by naming our Heroes and Villains—the very best and very worst people, places, things, and ideas that have had an influence on the city over the past twelve months.

Today, in villains: surreptitious but persistent ways of undermining the fabric of Toronto.

    Anti-Cycling Culture, for perpetuating an attitude that, quite literally, kills.  

    Chain Store Creep, for prioritizing convenience over character.  

    Apathetic Voters, for failing to care when caring matters most.  

    The Emerald Ash Borers, for nibbling their way through our tree canopy.  

From December 12–23, the candidates for Mightiest and Meanest—and new this year, a reader’s write-in option! From December 26–29 you’ll be able to vote for Toronto’s Superhero and Supervillain of the year, and we’ll reveal the results December 30.
