Some may be just attempting to increase their exposure to public while running for less important positions (ie. trustees).

Didn't think you could run for more than one position at a time.
Anyway, 35 candidates splitting the vote makes for a possibility of very few votes winning the mayors chair. I think Tory will win but, having that many candidates indicates problems withing the system.

I have a similar problem in my ward here in Ottawa. 17 Candidates in a small population ward. A small percentage of votes can win the seat.

I guess it's mathematically possible for the winner to win with 2.87% of the vote when you have 35 candidates, but realistically, most of those won't see triple-digit votes.

Of the 25 wards, 11 have two current members running, 11 have one current member running, and 3 have no current members running. Scarborough-Agincourt has two while neighbouring Scarborough North has none. I had assumed that every ward would have at least one current member running since they have the most exposure.

Tory will win as an election of Jennifer Keesmaat would likely lead to a property tax hike.

What makes Jennifer Keesmaat any more competition than the 33 others? And why would she be the only one that would lead to an increase of property taxes?

Keesmaat was a city Chief Planner for a few years and one would presume that not only does she have a good understanding of the current city development issues but also a better knowledge of the City Hall politics. That's why she is in the running against Tory. However, her platform seems to revolve too much on the heavily subsidies to social infrastructure. In one of her tweets she suggested the secession of Toronto from the province. This was immediately after Ford came out with the plan of reducing the size of the city council. Tory comes across as more of a centrist compared to Keesmaat (too far to the left). I do not believe that Toronto wants another David Miller for a mayor. Keesmaat would not be able to work along with Ford.

I can't stand Faith Goldy and her bubbly BS, but I'll vote for her just to piss off "we should ban handguns" Tory.

Tory hasn't done a single thing of note in his entire term in office and he seems to only be interested in getting the poorly-thought-out Scarborough subway built as quickly as possible so he can stamp his name on it. Keesamat would be a welcome change from how ineffective he is.

One upside to this election is that Mammoliti stands a good chance of being tossed and replaced with someone competent.

That could be said for any Toronto mayor. Obviously depending on which side of the political spectrum you belong Tory still has the support on many Torontonians.
