City of Toronto releases official election results

Posted by Derek Flack / October 28, 2010

Toronto Results 2010 Mayoral RaceThe City of Toronto has released the official results of the municipal election today. And while everyone knows who the winner was, a closer look at the breakdowns and final votes might be illuminating for those curious about how their ward leaned. 813,984 Torontonians cast ballots during the election (roughly 53%), with Rob Ford taking 383,501 total votes.

As the ward map above shows, the predicted urban/suburban split in voting preferences did indeed come to pass, with the majority of Smitherman voters concentrated in the area that used to be the municipality of Toronto prior to amalgamation. In an effort to contextualize Ford's victory, I've also included ward breakdowns from the 1997, 2003 and 2006 elections (I don't have a graphic of Lastman's 2000 win).

You know, if they held more events outside of the core and made people travel out and north once in a while, I think people would start to understand each other more and we could avoid these nasty divides every four years.

Travel out and north more? Not everyone has a car, money and free time. And not everyone wants to add to the already huge carbon footprint from people commuting to/from work in the core.

I agree. Besides the fact amalgamation was opposed by the people it was imposed on, it's just a mess. It allows suburbanites with different interests to slow down and interfere with the old City of Toronto, which is the social and economic engine. If the Old City of Toronto could just make its own decisions on, say, transit and bike lanes, these would eventually spill out into the 'suburbs' of the amalgamated municipalities, once they've seen the benefits. But with the current setup, you really have 2 different cities with different interests.

C'mon, Kieran and Missy.

Kieran, events happen predominantly in the core because it's the core. All cities are this way. It's the heart of things, the centre of gravity, and where there are the most venues gathering places (and transit options) to do stuff. It's the most logival place for most major events to occur.

Missy, I hope you're joking. I voted for Pantalone, but that's a jackass comment if you mean it.

Or, perhaps, more people in the outside areas should travel downtown? Spend some time in neighbourhoods, experience different things than boxes of various sorts, you know.
Why should it be one way?

Martin is completely right.

Besides that, this really burns me, since this entire "gravy train" narrative is barely disguised code for suburban/exurban angst towards the city. The same sentiment you hear about Toronto (or any big city) when out in the country or 'burbs; it's noisy so they feel it gets mroe money than it deserves. Meanwhile the city itself is being strangled by the political decisions of jerks who don't live in Toronto, for all practical purposes.

They gave is Lastman too. Let's elect the next Mayor based on whomever wants to fix THIS.

Amazing how no one discusses that the city is 2.7+ billion in the hole. Would I love for everyone to have social assistance, bike lanes, improved transit, etc.? Absolutely. Is it possible currently? Not so sure.

This isn't a battle between the suburb and core residents. It's about bringing the city out of the red so we can improve it for current and future generations. It costs the city $450 million a year to pay interest and principal on the city debt.

Think about that for a second... $450 million washed away each year and we're looking to spend more? Think about what programs that money could be spent on.

Time to treat the city like a business so it's sustainable. If not then look no further than Paris, Athens and London for where we will end up.

Kenny, there are plenty of people who work or travel downtown. Why do you think the DVP is blocked up day in and day out? Downtown people taking circular joy-rides for the hell of it?

The reason people don't leave downtown is because there isn't a reason to. So, give them a reason. Marathons, festivals, etc., don't have to be downtown. If you're going amalgamate a damn city, you better do more than just amalgamate their council and finances.

If someone is too stoosh to leave downtown for an event, then get over yourself. At the end of the day you live in Toronto, not New York.

Great comment Martin! I am a "downtowner" and I would hate to live up in the suburbs- no disrespect to anyone who lives there; it's just not me. I know people who live up in the 'burbs and who would hate to live downtown. These are clearly 2 very separate types of communities who value very different things.

To David I.- as someone who relies on the TTC to get around, I hate streetcars and I do not think they are precious.

I just took a glance at the polling information. The only wards where Ford's and Smitherman's numbers were close are where the old city of Toronto's northeastern border met with North York and East York. That's ward 16, 25, 26, 29 and 31. All were close--in ward 26, the difference was only 50 votes. The rest of the city's results are all pretty lopsided.

I have no idea where you got those numbers but they're grossly inflated. By law, Toronto can't carry any debt at all for operational expenditures. It can, and does, have debt for capital expenditures but they're no where near as high as your quoting. Here's a link if it helps: http://www.toronto.ca/finance/debt.htm

@David I. As for mishandling money, I suppose there are some examples where things could have gone better e.g., St. Clair Right-of-Way but it's an incredibly complex process and they've learned from many of their mistakes. Even so there are problems that are very difficult to anticipate, e.g., old watermain on Roncy that's not on the current maps. Like I said, things could always be better; but, they could be a lot worse too and by-in-large I feel the money I've paid in taxes has been well spent. Sadly, I don't think the couple of hundred bucks I might save under Ford will be worth the decimation to services that he seems to take pride in.

This kind of idea, although has some truth to it creates a dangerous precedent. Instead of drawing the lines between core and periphery, what if they were drawn down finance. What does a rich person know about a middle class person, who knows about a poor person?

The map doesn't tell the full story. Look at the numbers and you see thousands of voters downtown voted for Ford. Sure, he won the suburbs, but he also did better than expected in the heart of the city.

That was enough for him not just to win, but win substantially.

I completely agree. The idea that people who voted for Ford are stupid totally plays into the notion of the "downtown elites" which he exploited so effectively (I still think that Ford himself is an idiot though). People in different parts of the city do have different priorities, and I think that was part of Miller's undoing (although certainly not the only, or most important factor). He's very much an "old Toronto" mayor. Personally, I'm all for waterfront revitalization, Transit City and his environmental initiatives - but I don't think he was able to grasp that a working class family living out in Scarborough or recent immigrants in Rexdale don't give a rat's ass about bike lanes downtown. We had a downtown mayor for the past 7 years, and we're going to have a suburban one for at least the next 4. Hopefully at some point, someone will emerge who will be able to bridge that divide and speak to the city as a whole.

But it really is a different city (Old City of Toronto vs. The Rest). Take a look at the various areas using Google Street View. The physical environment and thus the sense of what the city means, is completely different depending on whether you live in the human-scale, densely populated old city or the car-dependent, loosely populated outer suburbs.

@Holden... taking a look at the link you provided, as of 2007 our net outstanding debt is 2.382 billion. As for the 450 million we pay to cover interest on the debt google it. All I am saying is that by reducing it, we will have more money to spend on improving the city.

I love how whenever there is a discussion about amalgamation, it's also centred around how "downtowners" have suffered because of it. It hasn't exactly been a sweet ride for us living in the "suburbs."

We also deal with Toronto's bullshit land transfer tax, $60 car registration fee, garbage strikes and the trainwreck of a TTC system, problems we likely would not have encountered had we not amalgamated with Toronto. So spare me your whining and put away your "blame the suburbs" attitude.

I didn't vote for FOrd because he's a buffoon, but if he can pull off all the things he says he will, we might be better off. It's not like it can get any worse, seeing as how we've spent the last 7 years under NDP rule.

Holden...You are correct. Bet you weren't expecting that. Miller was probably a good choice at the time. But when he swung the pendulum too far to the left then the natural tendency is to swing back to the right. Mr Ford may or may not swing too far to the right but that is for the future. The Miller legacy is not sustainable. Business and jobs are continually leaving the city - something must be done. Unemployment in Toronto is higher compared to the surrounding areas.

You're right, Amanda - the suburbs are probably worse off post-amalgamation. But maybe that's just another argument for de-amalgamation? Maybe it should become an election issue - hold a referendum in each (former) municipality and see if the residents want to remain a part of an amalgamated city, or go off on their own once again. I'm up for that.

But one thing to keep in mind is that as the region grows, those suburbs would eventually have to urbanize, increase density, etc, whether we're talking about 1 or 6 municipalities (just look at Mississauga). So if East York, Scarborough, York, North York and Etobicoke have suffered from amalgamation, that's likely just a natural part of changing from suburb to city, a process the old City of Toronto didn't have to deal with. (Plus there are problems like downloading of services to municipalities, limitations on municipal powers, etc)

Funny how those who aren't even from the city, but come and move directly in the core as young adults, think that they know what's best for the city & always have the loudest voices/strong opinions on such matters.

The 'burbs', as some call it, didn't want amalgamation just as much, if not more, as the core. It is what it is, and the interests of the downtown core doesn't always correlate with what's viable or reasonable outside of it & vice versa.

I know its not going to happen but I always thought it made a lot of sense to split Toronto into 2, one in the south and one in the north, I would split them like this since the south end of the city tends to be older form, denser residential areas centred around a main transit and commercial strip while the north end is more sprawling low density and car dependent. There are very urban old form areas in south Etobicoke and south Scarborough since development started around the lake edge way back when so I'd include those in old south Toronto and the newer sprawling suburban areas in north Toronto.

To me it seems the form of the area we live in determines many of our issues and concerns as well as the sort of solutions we need to solve our various issues. Anyways I always thought it made sense to include York and East York in Toronto, just not the more suburban areas of Etobicoke, Scarborough and North York but splitting the city according to the predominate form of the different areas makes the most sense to me.
Jeff / October 28, 2010 at 07:13 pm

The only solution is de-amalgamation. I say this as someone who grew up in Central Etobicoke and has lived downtown for the past 10 years. If you look at the results of the last few elections, they have mostly been suburbs vs. downtown. I think we just need to realize that people in an urban setting and in a suburban setting have different ways of living their lives and different values and to try to impose a one-size-fits-all solution will only alienate a portion of the population. It requires the entire council to have a say on something that only affects one part of the city and which that part of the city may want. For example, many people downtown want bike lanes but the people in the suburbs do not since they see them as a nuisance and, due to the layout of suburbia, there are few bikes who use them so they see no use for them. Hate to say it...but going back to the Metro regional level of government and then several regional governments to deal with more local issues is the only solution. In 1997, instead of imposing the "megacity", the province should have simply looked at tinkering with what we had - for example, fire departments used to be handled by the city and police and transit were metro-wide - why not just transfer the fire department to the metro government? Also the City of York and East York should have been amalgated into the old City of Toronto so that we had four city-levels of government - Etobicoke, North York, Toronto, and Scarborough. I think that going back to a version of what we had is the only solution to this ongoing problem.

You really should make a more accurate map, saying what the largest vote in each riding was is very misleading. It makes people think everyone in that ward voted that way when very often less than half the people the did! The winner takes all but you shouldn't ignore the voters in each riding even further by pretending they all voted blue or red. People are never going to understand how disfunctional our democracy is if the media keeps churning out useless charts like this without thinking. I wouldn't normally include you in 'the media' but you have the exact same chart at the CBC, so blogto=FAIL.

This is what the chart should look like:
-shades of purple between blue and red to indicate how much support when to each of the two. If they were neck in neck in that ward then its purple, more ford means more blue but pure blue should be reserved to the highest support ward, his home riding I assume. Also, since the Pantalone and other vote was not insignificant at all, you should also include an overlay in each ward, perhaps orange stripes? that get brighter as the total support for someone other than ford and smitherman goes up. This would show up more closely which wards were really behind Ford, which were split and which had even more complex dynamics.

The map you have, is less than useless, its deceiving.

You're obviously uneducated in the city layout of New York. They face the exact same issue we do here in Toronto because of the 5 boroughs. Manhattan Island has always taken precedent over the other 4 boroughs & consequently, they deteriorated into ghettos over time. Only through revitalization & gentrification are they now finally being developed to their potential. Toronto needs to learn from NYC's mistakes & not isolate the surrounding boroughs/municipalities, but rather come together to make the entire city as a whole work in unison. The better the transit system throughout all of Toronto, will make this city a lot smaller & the so called 'burbs' will no longer seem all that distant. Currently, the fact that it takes 1 1/2 hrs to get to Markham & Steeles makes it seem like a completely different city & area code.
