Keep the Momentum Going!

York South-Weston is ground zero for change in this city. The community has been proving that this week. I have seen so much passion - on doorsteps, at bus stops and outside subway stations, and from so many volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to this campaign.

We have the momentum to bring a fresh start to this community, but we can’t maintain it without you.

Today is the last day to cast an early vote. 

EARLY VOTING DETAILS
DATE: Sunday, Oct 19
TIME: Open each day from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

MetroNews: Debate recap: Lekan Olawoye offers a respectable voice for Ward 12

By: Matt Elliot, Metro Canada

I’ll be honest. I didn’t expect the Ward 12 candidates debate on Rogers TV to be so emotional.

Coun. Frank Di Giorgio, the incumbent, set the tone as he seemed on the verge of tears as he gave his opening statement. “There are two things that I wish to say to residents,” he said, his voice cracking, “I am running for re-election because I believe that…” He trailed off. There was then a long, awkward silence as Di Giorgio tried to compose himself.

He eventually hit his talking points, pointing to his time serving the community and his record as Mayor Rob Ford’s budget chief, but Di Giorgio’s message was delivered with a side order of defensiveness throughout the debate. “Real, meaningful, transformational change requires time,” he told viewers. It’s a fair point, but, setting aside a brief three-year hiatus post-amalgamation, Di Giorgio has represented the area since 1985. That would seem like a lot of time.
