LANDSLIDE: John Tory Re-Elected Mayor Of Toronto, Keesmaat Soundly Defeated

Tory won nearly two-thirds of the vote.

John Tory has been re-elected Mayor of Toronto in a landslide victory.

Left-wing socialist Jennifer Keesmaat – who floated insane ideas like Toronto seceding from Ontario – was soundly defeated.

Faith Goldy and Saron Gebresellassi rounded up the top four.

Tory’s win was declared quickly after results came in, with his wide margin leaving little room for doubt.

Here are the key results: (percentages may change slightly as the final count is completed)

TORY – 63%

KEESMAAT – 24%

GOLDY – 3%

GEBRESELLASSI – 2%

The Toronto Election was the first under the 25 councillor slate, after the Ford government slashed Toronto City Council to save money and increase efficiency.

Patrick Brown may achieve political redemption

With the race for Brampton Mayor not yet called, former PC Leader Patrick Brown (who lost his role as Ontario Opposition Leader after a seemingly-flawed CTV story – for which CTV is now being sued), had a narrow lead.

Brown was around 44-45%, while his closest opponent Linda Jeffrey was around 41-42%.
