Highlights from David's bio:

As Toronto City councillor, deputy mayor, and budget chief, Hutcheon delivered on his promise of no tax increases over three consecutive budgets, while streamlining and modernizing the city's public service.

He was active in the creation of two crime prevention programs, Mobile Watch/Surveillance Mobile across Canada, and Park Watch in High Park. His Take Back the Wall graffiti project created jobs for troubled youth.

When homeless people were dying on our winter streets, Hutcheon organized "Operation Cold Snap," an emergency housing program using civilian and military volunteers to provide shelter for the homeless at Moss Park Armoury. As chair of the City of Toronto Homeless Emergency Action Task Force, he ensured that the City implemented the Extreme Cold Weather Alert program to assist the homeless. It is still in use today. Hutcheon was instrumental in turning the surplus Swansea Town Hall into a functioning community centre, and in building the seniors' home next door.

Elections Ontario reminds us that the advance polls in this by-election close today at the following polling stations.

If he is in favour of nuking IRAN then he is my man! We simply are not nuking stuff that needs to be nuked. So if he is one of the good ones he will make the pledge to his voters and he will get LOTS of votes just like mine! We are sick of people trying to wreck a perfectly good war!

Let's nuke something.

David's got my vote. I met him a couple of months ago and was quite impressed. It is beyond me why all the pundits are considering this a two-way race between the Liberals and the NDP. The PC candidate in the previous election did come in second.

Given all the mud slinging between the Liberals and the NDP, I am hopeful he can slip up the middle.
