Unless something has changed, the new boundaries are unlikely to be in place before the next election according to staff. I posted this in October based on an article:With the addition of three new wards in 2018, has there been any chatter on potential candidates, other than the obligatory Kevin Clarke candidacy?
Consultants had met the original timeline set out by staff, but because Tory pushed back and asked them to come back with 44 ward option, this move has now pushed the timelines beyond 2018. For another 4 years, downtown residents will continue to be underrepresented. Their overworked councillors will continue to be burdened by large populations and development proposals. All thanks to John Tory's politically motivated manipulation of democracy. When asked by the media about this, Tory says he doesn't apologize for delaying ward boundaries process.
