Jennifer Keesmat, mayoral candidate and Toronto’s former city planner, visited Weston this weekend, and hung out with our NDP MPP Faisal Hassan. She also met Chiara Padovani, who hopes to become our city councillor.
Is this the start of an allegiance? I’m tempted to enquire, but it’s one of those questions I don’t really want an answer to.
Your correspondent has heretofore not been a Keesmat supporter, because he has a long memory and will not forgive her for shoehorning a 29-storey tower into 22 John St, and (incorrectly) papering the decision with the tall building guidelines.
But this is an enchanting possibility: a sharp left turn, a unified front, and a clean break. I’m not yet in favour, but I could be.
What a fun way to kick off the long weekend in Toronto at the Weston Farmers’ Market! Had a great time talking with residents and local farmers this morning – an excellent event for the Weston community. @WestonBIA #Keesmaat4Mayor pic.twitter.com/qAbbanZAcL
