People don’t participate but will fully complain after the fact.

Not a high bar to hop over, but the unopposed guy in Don Valley East looks like a major improvement over DMW. Not a progressive, but someone who'll join the centrists.

Of the other 6, the only one I'm surprised to see running unopposed is Bradford - he barely won in 2018.

After the record low turnout in the provincial election and now scenarios like this, doesn't feel like a stretch to say we're in a bit of a democratic crisis in Ontario right now.

I need someone to run for Etobicoke Centre and save me from having Stephen Holyday as my city councillor again 😤
