Toronto Mayoral Forum: After a few bumps, democracy rolls on

30+ ACORN members in a crowd of over 350 waited peacefully as fringe candidates, both ultra right-wing and left, disrupted the Toronto Mayoral Forum on Affordable Housing & Homelessness event, co-hosted by ACORN. The organizations organizing the event had selected the top 3 housing positions from mayoral candidates who are challenging Mayor Tory, but Tory didn’t show!

After a 20-minute disruption, the event got moving and we heard from the candidates, who responded to the audience's questions about housing.

Unfortunately, Jennifer Keesmaat left for safety reasons between far-right chants.
