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.
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.
Hamilton Spectator: [url=http://www.thespec.com/news/elections/article/266686--di-ianni-poll-puts... Ianni poll puts him in front in mayoral race[/url]
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.
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.
