Episode details

Did you know that Toronto is a big city? It’s true! If it were a province, it would rank fifth on the list. More people live in Toronto than in all of Atlantic Canada or in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

And on June 26, Torontonians will be going to the polls in the biggest byelection in Canadian history.

Voters will have lots of options for John Tory’s replacement, as there are dozens of candidates on the ballot. The list of real contenders is shorter — but still really long.

To weed out the pretenders from the contenders, I’m joined this week by Matt Elliott, a contributing columnist to the Toronto Star and publisher of the City Hall Watcher newsletter.
