One is for candidates for city council, and the other is for candidates for Toronto District School Board trustee.

The last 24 hours have been a rollercoaster! Yesterday morning we found out that we won the historic court case on Doug Ford’s Bill 5 — the bill that gerrymandered our wards and slashed Toronto City Council in half, right in the middle of our elections.
