toronto mayoral race app

New app lets you compare Toronto mayoral candidates

The Toronto mayoral fast approaches. And while the loss of Karen Stintz from the race today should make things ever so slightly easier for voters who have yet to make up their minds (she was only polling at around 4 per cent), those who fall in the undecided category will benefit from a slick new website and app designed to track the platforms of the leading mayoral candidates. Of course there's plenty of articles that track just this kind of information, but the advantage here is that the information is laid out in an easy to digest and graphically pleasing manner.

Well, that and the fact that the tool is available as an app for both Android and iOS. Sure, this won't be the most useful app you'll ever download, but if you want to get a handle on what each candidate has to offer, flipping through their platforms while waiting for the bus or coffee might actually be a great way to get better informed without devoting much energy to the enterprise. And given that it's free, there's little reason not to give it a whirl.
