60 candidates vie for Council vacancies
Sixty candidates have put their names forward for two City of Toronto Council vacancies. Ward 20 (Trinity Spadina) and Ward 41 (Scarborough-Rouge River) became vacant late last year when incumbents Olivia Chow and Bas Balkissoon resigned from City Council. Chow is seeking election in the current federal election campaign; Balkissoon won a by-election in the provincial riding of Scarborough-Rouge River.

Any eligible elector in Toronto interested in filling the vacancies until Council’s term ends on Nov. 30, were required to attend a meeting last night at City Hall. Interested candidates had until noon today to file their nomination papers with the City.

The names of candidates for each of the two ward vacancies (noted below) will now go to their respective Community Councils on Jan. 17 where individuals can depute and be asked questions by Councillors. The Community Councils will vote to recommend appointees for City Council’s consideration.

City Council, as a whole, will hold a special meeting of Council on Jan. 31 at 5 p.m. and make the final decision. Candidates will have an opportunity, again, to depute and answer questions at that time.
