Wouldn’t it be convenient to know which candidates in your Ward had a progressive approach and which of those had the best chance of winning? It sure would help you to make your voting decision.

In the west end of the city, TCRP is campaigning hard to help Amber Morley in Ward 3. In the north’s Ward 7 it’s Anthony Perruzza, and in Scarborough it’s Felicia Samuel in Ward 23.
