Joe Pantalone is running for Mayor of Toronto
Councillor Pantalone represents a continuation of the David Miller years. He represents the status quo and the increasing decline of Canada's largest city. He may not be a household name, but he has been in Toronto politics for longer than I've been alive. Despite Torontonians being sick of socialist policies, I would not like to discount Mr. Pantalone's chances of victory.
I'm not yet sure who should be the man to beat him. Mr. Tory has decided not to run for mayor (I was unlikely to support him anyway), which leaves either Liberal George Smitherman or Liberal Rocco Rossi.
At the moment I am leaning towards Mr. Rossi. It is early days, but the fact that he has promised to reduce the mayor's salary and to only sit for two terms is very hopeful.

I loved him in the Sapranos. :)
