          Congrats to Don, a big win, and well deserved. I hope he brings a lot of energy to implement a lot of what is sitting on shelves untouched. Great for the city. Implementing "the way we sprawl" would be a good start:

          For that plan was better than what we got.

            I haven't much liked her coverage. The "I really like this result" rings as a little different.

            So far this has been like viewing who Krushell would invite to a garden party than objective commentary on all the candidates.

            I'm actually somewhat surprised the degree to which she is this candid. Although not surprised how partisan she is. I don't think for a moment she's aware that when she's resolutely supporting one candidate that it reflects unfairly on everybody representing democracy in each ward.

            Although she is no longer incumbent and needing to work with some of these people so I think she's feeling a little free to say whatever she wants.
            I wish the bolded part was true because she is NOT saying much about anything or anyone.

            As a former councillor, we all know on where Krushell leans about certain issues and who her allies are on city council. I'm fine with her being somewhat partisan...."I'm so happy for Sohi!".

            But give us some dirt. Tell the viewers why Diotte's campaign failed. Tell us what Leibovici should of done differently. Saying "I really like this result" doesn't really engage me.

            Michael Phair has sat on election night panels in previous years. Even though it was obvious who he was pulling for, at least he added substance to the coverage.

                    I wonder if Diotte will man up and concede, or childishly wait till the bitter end.

                      leibovici won't stop talking here. I've seen presidential winning speeches less lengthy than this.

                          I'm surprised she didn't start naming her food caterers she used during her campaign...

                            Global was actually talking about the dynamics of the election and the interplay and how Diotte was trying to capture an angry vote that really wasn't there. tbh I thought there would be a lot more of it myself. Looks the public has given consent to continuation as opposed to a different direction in council.
                            Although council will be much different with 6 new candidates.
