Why not -- NONE OF THE ABOVE

I am really disheartened by the muncipal elections in Toronto...I cannot stand my local councillor and I hate all the mayoral candidates...WTF can I not vote for:

NONE OF THE ABOVE

by crossing out all the names and if 51% did so...the parties (elites) would have to give a whole new slate of candidates...  As I am tired of the media circus and also the ineptitude  and ignorance that seemingly abound...this time around.

Hamilton municipal election

Anyone here with news from on the ground in Hamilton? I've been following the election in my former hometown from abroad, through the [url=http://www.thespec.com/news/elections]Hamilton Spectator election website[/url].

 

I see that Larry DiIanni has put a poll out now suggesting he's ahead.

A leaked poll from Larry Di Ianni's campaign suggests he is set to retake the mayor's job he lost to incumbent Fred Eisenberger in 2006.

Ford vs Smitherman vs Pantalone

I think its time for a new generic thread about the Toronto mayoralty race. The news today is that Adam Vaughan has grudgingly endorsed Smitherman, while damning him with faint praise:

"“I like Joe and I consider him a friend, but you have to fight the election you’re dealt, not the one you want,” Vaughan said in an interview Friday morning.

“The only way to deal with Rob Ford is George Smitherman. I’m prepared to work with George Smitherman,” he said.

Moving forward on municipal voting reform in Toronto

Larry Gordon
Progressive activists have been fighting for fair and proportional systems, and voter equality, at the federal and provincial levels. Now we need to press for the same at the municipal level.
