John Tory will continue to serve as mayor of Toronto for a third term.
The Toronto municipal election came to a close last night, and results revealed a strong lead for Tory, who held approximately 62% of the vote. Gil Penalosa lagged behind in a distant second place with approximately 17.9% of the votes, and Chloe Brown received roughly 6.3% of votes.
While official numbers will only be available sometime in the next 30 days, current estimates show that roughly 29% of eligible voters, or approximately 549,000 people, turned up to the polls.
Tory is currently looking at becoming the city of Toronto‘s longest-serving mayor if he remains in power for the next four years. That record is currently held by Art Eggleton, who was in office for 11 years from 1980 to 1991.
