Our next four years: So how is October's municipal election shaping up?

As of July 14, prominent urbanist Gil Penalosa, best known for founding nonprofit 8 80 Cities, is now the highest profile challenger to Mayor John Tory.

At least six incumbents are out of the running for the October municipal election. Councillors Michael Ford and Kristyn Wong-Tam were both elected MPPs in the June provincial election, Councillor Joe Cressy resigned in April to join George Brown College, and Councillors Ana Bailao, John Filion, and Denzil Minnan-Wong have chosen not to run again. (And so far, Councillor Mark Grimes has not registered to run, although he has until August 19 to do so.)

You can find a complete list of candidates on the City's website.
