Canada Global (Web News) The election to succeed John Tory as mayor of Toronto is scheduled to take place on June 26. The city clerk made the announcement on Thursday.
Tory, who was chosen to serve a third term in office in October, announced his resignation last week after admitting to having a “inappropriate affair” with a former member of his staff.
The byelection’s June date is contingent on council’s official declaration of the mayor’s office as vacant and adoption of a bylaw necessitating a byelection when it meets on March 29, according to city clerk John D. Elvidge.
As a result, the nomination period for the election would start on April 3 and end on May 12, and early voting would be accessible from June 8 to June 13.
