I see there are two progressives running in York South-Weston. Any sense of whether Chiara Padovani or Lekan Olawoye is the stronger candidate?

Really like the both of them. They are great candidates. I know Lekan pushed Di Giorgio mighty close last time so I feel like he is stronger. However, with Nunziata I am not sure how he would fair. Chiara is great too but I fear they will both monopolise each others vote and it will be either incumbant again. I wish one of them would withdraw but doesnt look likely.

I find it funny how outraged people are at Mark Towhey's suggestion that Sarah Doucette "lost the nomination" in Parkdale-High park. The outrage really leads me to believe there is some truth to it. At worst she knew she wouldn't get nominated so she just didn't attempt it.

"Thorns_Embrace" conspiracy theory: John Tory is preparing a slate of candidates to endorse and Bailao made it over Palacio.

If you were planning to volunteer for Ana Bailao to keep out the awful Cesar Palacio, you don't have to worry anymore as Cesar has withdrawn. If you want to make a difference now you can volunteer for Shelley Carroll who is facing a tough battle against a friend of the recently elected PC MPP.

Very surprising move by Palacio. Slam dunk win for Bailão.

Given how supportive he was of Ford’s council decision, maybe Ford is giving him a cushy gig?

It would have been nice if a progressive had run in Davenport (Alejandra Bravo or Jonah Schein for example).

Agreed. It was a real d*ck movie for Palacio do it last minute.

There were a few rumblings that former NDP Davenport MP Andrew Cash was going to throw his hat in the ring.

- Han Dong didn’t re-register.

- Joyce Rowlands, who I believe is the daughter of June Rowlands, is running in University-Rosedale.i

In essence you self-nominate so it's pretty hard to 'lose a nomination' in Council races. You can lose the support of some 'group' or Party and you can certainly lose the actual election.
