Strong mayor powers are coming to 26 Ontario municipalities giving mayors a greater ability to win votes and appoint officials.
Toronto deputy mayor Jennifer McKelvie has given her endorsement to Anna Bailao. We check the race to see if that has changed the numbers.
Bonnie Crombie has officially thrown her hat into the ring in the Ontario Liberal leadership race. We're still waiting to see who else will enter the fray, but things are heating up in determining the direction of the party. Nate Erskine-Smith wants to keep the party progressive while Crombie wants to rear to the centre.
And Kat Eschner, TVO's affordability reporter, joins the podcast to speak with Steve Paikin and John Michael about the financial mess the new mayor of Toronto will inherit when they take office. How will Canada's largest city work its way out of a one-billion-dollar budget shortfall?
