_The problem is that no one has yet stepped up to seriously challenge Miller. Pitfield keeps making silly gaffs like last week's yes/no vote confusion.

But then the status quo is taking our city down. Somebody new couldn't make it worse, and there's the possiblity to make it better. We know Miller won't. He's proven that in the last 3 years.

There is some interesting general information on the Toronto municipal elections page.

Interesting, yes! It seems Pitfield is the only one to address the issue about the disconnect between the property taxes tenants pay and the costs of city services for them. I assume they're backing Pitfield?

I've heard security has been turning canvassers away, but don't know if that issue has been resolved. I personally have seen exactly one canvasser. It's been getting really bad these past few years at how few people come around now compared to elections in the 20th century.
