So, what is your theory as to why this happened? Is it because all the blame was put on the Mayor? Is it because the challengers to the incumbents were not convincing enough? Was it that they ran poor campaigns? Was it the cash factor- corporate/union donations anyone? Was it that there were too many challengers, enabling some incumbents to slip through? Was it a combination of all these factors and more? Was it a loyal base? Or is it because we truly believe that many of the councillors from the last term are the best people to lead us in the next four years?
How do you interpret what happened, and what factors do you think played most heavily in shaping the outcome?
We haven't checked in with CHML's Scott Thompson. We hope he hasn't suffered a coronary ;-)
