Last week, Metro published the results of conversations under the social media tagged #MayorQs with mayoral candidates John ToryKaren StintzDavid Soknacki, and Olivia Chow.

While we do enjoy former TTC Chair Karen Stintz’s enthusiasm towards the City of Toronto, citizens in the 2014 election are demanding less zeal and and more pragmatics; essentially platform over platitudes.

Albeit well-intentioned, Ms. Stintz’s attempt to reach out to regular Torontonians with the now infamous “I am like you” tweet:

…demonstrates the socioeconomic disconnect between candidates and communities that, in the 2010 civic election, left Toronto with unrepresentative representation.

We can do better, Toronto!
