Toronto Municipal Election

Posted by alltogethernow on 2010-02-12 16:13:00

Out of the candidates who have actual information listed we have:

- A white supremacist
- A blind dude with the campaign slogan "the man with the vision"
- A homeless guy

And my favourite:

Douglas Campbell

* Endorsements:
* Date officially registered: January 4[4]
* Website:

Campbell contested for the leadership of the federal and provincial New Democratic Party on five occasions, beginning in 1970. Campbell resurfaced in 1988 as a fringe candidate for mayor of North York, Ontario. Most recently, Campbell has run for Mayor of Toronto in 2000, 2003 and 2006, receiving 1.2% and 0.3% of the vote in the first two contests respectively. During the 2006 campaign he was quoted as saying "the answer is public ownership of land. Businessmen are going to nuclearize the planet. If you vote for a capitalist candidate, you're voting to kill children".[7]

Fuck!

Someone should run on the platform that the TTC is easily the worst transit system in the industrialized world... and worse than some 2nd and 3rd world nations.

I would vote for them in a heartbeat... well as long as they won't "nuclearize" the planet.
