HAT Forum - "Municipal Election Wrap Up"

  • The 519, Rm 304 (but always check the lobby screen) 519 Church Street Toronto, ON, M4Y 2C9 Canada (map)

In light of the fascinating discussions we had last week about Municipal politics and the varying importance the group gave to important concepts like representation, responsiveness, transparency and expert knowledge, now is the time to see what happened in the current system.

  1. Election Results

    • John Tory                       477,689  63.5%

    • Jennifer Keesmaat          177,130  23.5%

    • Other                             97,332   13%

  2. What does John Tory’s win by such a huge margin mean for his role of Mayor for this term?

  3. Are there any notable changes from the previous city council membership that will have an impact on council moving forward.

  4. What implications does this have for the city’s relationship with the Province?

  5. Faith Goldy came in 3rd place with 25,667 votes, what does this indicate for the state of Canadian politics?

  6. Will anything change going forward? Is that good or bad?

Join us as we look through the Toronto government we are stuck with for the next 4 years and continue to discuss the Toronto that could be.
