50 Cent (loud bully with a shady past, disliked by peers, somehow still popular)

Buckshot (short, old school, feisty)

He copped a plea... three times.

Says the worst thing he’s ever done was, “vote the same way as Rob Ford.”

10 in municipal

30 in municipal

As the councilor for Ward 2, Ford has built a reputation among his constituents as an everyman politician who fights for his people. Unfortunately, Ford’s people does not include anyone from the arts or culture sectors.

Joe Pantalone’s candidacy for mayor came out of the shadows of Adam Giambrone’s disgraceful departure from the race. To many on the left, Mr. Pantalone is the tiny giant, the David to the politically conservative Goliath. Mr. Pantalone presents a strong case for why he should be Toronto’s next mayor. For one, he has more political experience than all mayoral candidates combined and secondly, he’s been our Deputy Mayor since 2003.

Rob Ford’s platform reads like a municipal riot act, outlining what Toronto must do “or else.” He calls for increased funding for the Toronto Police, reduced spending at City Hall and the elimination of the vehicle registration tax and the land transfer tax. But what about the arts? Mr. Ford has a message for you artsy “freeloaders.” In response to the recent victory with City Council’s approval of the Toronto Billboard Tax, Mr. Ford sneered, “I’ve got news for you...The arts and culture people that think you’re getting this money—you’re not getting this money.”

65

For the arts, Mr. Pantalone proposes a Cultural Access Pass program to ensure new Torontonians can enjoy the city’s many arts and culture institutions. He also intends to market Toronto’s screen industry internationally to increase local employment opportunities.

Rocco Rossi

Sarah Thomson

George Smitherman

1962

1968

1964

6’4

5’2

6’1

Nelly (shouldn’t be rapping, all about his money, barely holding onto relevancy)

Soulja Boy (rich, really unqualified, and totally clueless)

Kanye West (meteoric rise, some anger issues)

Once referred to himself as a “recovering capitalist.”

Received Conrad Black’s blessing for her mayoral campaign.

Word has it his nickname in his old neighbourhood was “Slitherman.”

Zero, officially, but was the Director of the Liberal Party of Canada for one year.

Zero, including the time she lost by 200, err, 1000 votes.

9 in provincial

While Rocco Rossi is a newcomer in the political arena, he is not new to politics. He’s played a key role in the Liberal Party of Ontario as an influencer, and key adviser to Michael Ignatieff and he has a knack for raising money—a lot of money.

Feminists across the city may have cheered when a woman announced that she would be running for the top job at City Hall, then they learned said woman was Sarah Thomson, a virtual unknown in politics. Since then, it’s been nine months of watching Sarah duke it out in publicized debates and humiliate herself with Palinesque responses to serious questions.

In four short years Smitherman has gone from rookie politician to Deputy Premier to Minister of Health and Long Term Care to Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, a career path that made him the election’s front-runner—for a while.

Like Joe, Rocco’s platform builds on the City of Toronto’s 2003 Creative City plan. He also vows to create an Arts and Culture Commissioner and promises to keep Toronto’s arts investments at parity with other North American cities. Rocco suggests that two thirds of funding for the arts come from the recently approved billboard tax, and one third from “savings and efficiencies” in the city’s operating budget. As for the Arts and Culture Commissioner, it’s probably the most exciting idea for the arts and culture industry in Toronto.

66

None of this takes away from her past achievements of building and reviving businesses, but when it comes to the arts she’s not offering much. On her website, Ms. Thomson’s entire arts platform is seven sentences long and its only concrete statement is, “We support the billboard tax and believe funds should go to arts organizations.” It’s so short it’s practically a haiku.

@thomsonto

George’s municipal platform focuses on efficiencies and services in areas like integrated transportation, community safety, the environment and parks and recreation—but what about the arts? As of this writing, Smitherman had not released his art platform to the public, but he has met with local arts groups to discuss ideas. C’mon dude, the city’s artists need you... announce your platform already.
