With voting day on Monday October 22nd, this is the final weekend of campaigning for municipal election candidates across the province.
Here in Toronto, fresh opinion polls are indicating close councillor races in some areas, not so close in others.
According to Forum Research, Josh Matlow has the edge on Joe Mihevc as the incumbents face off in Ward 12 Toronto-St Paul’s, despite Mayor John Tory’s endorsement of Mihevc.
Matlow leads among decided and leaning voters, with 49 precent to Mihevc’s 43 percent support.
Giorgio Mammoliti is trailing Anthony Perruzza by double digits in Ward 7 Humber River-Black Creek.
In Ward 13 Toronto Centre, incumbent Krystyn Wong-Tam is cruising, leading former provincial cabinet minister George Smitherman by 30 percent.
Ward 5 York-South Weston, incumbent Frances Nunziata is leading another incumbent Frank Di Giorgio by 20 percent.
Ward 15 Don Valley West, Jaye Robinson has an 11 percentage point lead over Jon Burnside.
And in Ward 22 Scarborough-Agincourt, Forum Research says Jim Karygiannis holds a four point lead over Norm Kelly.
