Hillary, escape! You could run in a potential upcoming Scarborough council by-election or something.
It’s Day Two of Council, and Day One of the Trumpocalypse.
In the context of a bigoted and nativist man elected on a platform that largely encourages him to undermine the country’s most important institutions, Toronto’s ward boundary review may not seem that consequential. But it is! Whatever might be going on in the U.S., Toronto deserves fair local representation, and this debate helps shape that. Just please, for the love of all that is good, don’t elect Donald Trump as your local councillor.
