Well, I am a real political junkhead to be posting this stuff.

Larry O'Brien won the mayor's race in Ottawa very easily as it turned out. Incumbent mayor Bob Chiarelli got buried in third place with 15% of the vote.

In Vaughan Linda Jackson won that nasty mayor's race by a hair.

In Toronto - Danforth, the final tally in the city council race in ward 29 has incumbent Case Ootes winning by only 20 votes. I guess the right-leaning voters were so discouraged by the blowout mayor's race that they gave up and stayed home, and almost cost Ootes his job.

Pretty left-leaning TO City Council. All the usual people got in and just one incumbent councillor was defeated.

I missed not being with my political friends this election night--- we could have ranted and raved about these bad election results and how the people of Toronto are such fools, and on and on.

And finally in Markham Joe Li lost yet again. The poor guy should really give up already.

Uh, that's pretty much it.
