Be sure to tune in next Monday night EST to hear who wins the Toronto Mayoral election! Will it be Doug Ford, ex(?)hash dealer, dead-eyed puppet-master of dear old Rob, for another 4-year shitshow?

John Tory, a former talk show host on CFRB/CFRX is also running for mayor and seems to be DrugDoug's biggest opponent.
