Gay Man the Early Favorite to be Toronto's New Mayor

smithermanFirst Houston, now, perhaps, Toronto? is reporting that George Smitherman (left), an openly gay Torontonian, will run for mayor.  According to the blog, "The former deputy premier for Ontario threw his hat in the ring to become the next mayor of Toronto.  The  National Post calls Smitherman the frontrunner, and the Canadian Press noted Smitherman’s toughest opponent has dropped out of the race" when "his biggest competition and former political foe John Tory – who came a close second to current mayor David Miller in the 2003 election – bowed out of the race Thursday after mulling a bid for months."

The election isn't until October, with 14 candidates already in the race
