Music Toronto election

A music fan's guide to the Toronto election

If Toronto's music and/or nightlife scenes are important to you, take note: Thump has released a handy guide to Toronto's mayoral election. Vice may not be on music's side every time, but this shareable infographic might be what you need to decide between Chow-ing down on chance, living a safe story with Tory, or being the kind of person who votes Ford. Excuse the terrible wordplay, I have election anxiety.

The chart runs down where each of the three leading candidates stand on four issues: extended last call, balancing nightlife with residential issues, drug related deaths at music events, and "cementing Toronto's place as an international destination for music." Check out the guide here, and we'll see you at the polls on Monday.
