Now word comes from our Canadian informant Tim Sheithner that liberal Toronto has just elected a Tea Party mayor in a landslide!
[...] the new right wing mayor of Toronto who completely blew away his opponents (he was declared the winner 11 mins after the polls closed). Polling had indicated the race would be close --- oops. He came out of nowhere but his platform resonated with a normally liberal city.
The issue he campaigned on: cut taxes, take on the city’s unions who were crippling the budget (first on the hit list, garbage collectors…look at privatizing it).
More on the election here.
... and the Toronto media are already whining about it.
