Don Cherry would be a funny choice, dear I say," for the hockey fans". Of course, we know how DoFo is. And, Hazel will likely salute to DoFo all time. They're all conservative..
Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion endorses Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals

Hazel McCallion endorses Trudeau and Liberals in federal election

Hazel is a Liberal. It's just that the Liberals have become so incompetent and moved so far left in the past few years that she couldn't take it anyone. Warren Kinsella, Dan McTague, John Manley are other examples.

Hazel is not a hard-L Liberal - she is, and has always been an opportunist that blows however the wind blows. A populist at heart.

Question: If both provincial and federal governments have been "so far left" the past decade, why is income disparity in Toronto growing so quickly? Why is there so much homelessness? Why does infrastructure lag?

Based on what I learned in school, neoliberalism.

but, on topic, curious to see whether Hazel can actually do anything decent with this file. I have to think there's someone a bit more "hip" out there but maybe someone who helped create the problem has a good perspective on how to fix it.

I'd say it's likely because the goal of the left (maybe not the stated goal, but the result of their governance) is to lower the overall standard, and rely on a few very rich donors to support you.

The only contingent that'd call Hazel "left of centre" is that which seriously believed Faith Goldy was on track to winning a double digit share.

Faith started in 3rd and finished in 3rd.
Even though the 4th and 5th candidate were promoted and invited to several debates.
The actions of the media helped kill her campaign and ensured that the issues were not talked about. This likely contributed in some way to the record breaking homicides in Toronto last year.
