The provincial/federal riding of Scarborough-Agincourt is […]

Mapping the election: Toronto’s East End (Wards 29, 30, 31, and 32)

In this post, I examine the results in four east-end wards, Wards 29 and 30, Toronto-Danforth, and Wards 31 and 32, Beaches-East York. All four wards selected John Tory as their first choice as mayor (though by differing margins), and all four returned their incumbent councillors. Only in Ward 30 was there an interesting council […]
