I find it strange that we entrust Council with making decisions on the number of wards and their boundaries. Actually I find it strange we entrust that flaming clown car with anything, but that's another story. But in the ward boundary case it would seem to make sense to have a municipal analogue to Elections Canada, to attempt to take at least some of the politics and councillor self-interest out of the process.

Thanks for the list, animatronic. However, Councilor McMahon said she will not be running for re-election. I wouldn't be surprised if Sandra Bussin tries to reclaim her seat for a second time. I think Matthew Kellway, the former MP/NDP urban affairs critic, would be an ideal candidate.
I truly hope that Kellway runs.

I don't want to see Bussin back in council.

I wonder if Ron Moeser will run again? He's taken sick leaves sporadically the last few years, and barely held on for his re-election in 2010 and 2014.

With the addition of three new wards in 2018, has there been any chatter on potential candidates, other than the obligatory Kevin Clarke candidacy?

I am not 100% happy with the voting record of my councillor, but unless I see a good challenger, I will probably support him.
