Canada’s alt-Right have chosen their candidate

…and, long term, I don’t think that’s so good for that candidate – running, as he is, to be mayor of Canada’s most diverse city.

And it’s not an outlier, either, by the by: the far Right have made a clear decision. The proof is right there in plain view.

    You would think with how diverse the areas are where the Ford Nation is strongest he would have enough sense to stay away from this, but I guess not. That being said it seems in Toronto about 1/3 are solid Ford Nation supporters who will just vote for a Ford no matter how awful or what they do.

    How did Toronto become Canada’s “most diverse city”? Surely that’s Vancouver by a wide margin.

    • Miles Lunn says:

      Depends what you mean by diversity. If you mean percentage visible minority or foreign born than Vancouver and Toronto are closely tied, but if you mean in terms of variety of countries, Toronto by a mile. In Vancouver you have a large Chinese, East Indian while less so of Filipino, Korean, and Iranian on the North Shore. While in Toronto you not only have those, you also have Tamils, Afro-Caribbean, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Jewish, Pakistani etc. Off course both are diverse cities say in comparison to Quebec City or St. John’s.

    I’m not a Torontonian but I tend to follow municipal politics in Canada’s bigger cities. My sense as an outsider looking in is that John Tory seems pretty much invincible. Incumbency is always a huge advantage in municipal races unless you’ve done something to really tick people off, and I don’t get the sense that Tory has. He does not seem to have alienated the ‘burbs in the way that Miller did, nor has he alienated ‘Old Toronto’ in the way the Lastman and Ford did. Without another credible candidate from the centre or left, I can’t see much risk of a vote split to Tory’s detriment. I’d be curious to know from some Torontonians if my perceptions are accurate.

    he can run, but he can’t win. Not gonna bump Tory, no way he can get that many votere to the polls. Nasty man. Might shave some of Tory’s support though, leave enough room for a left candidate? Probably not, but lets see
