Ward 5 (York-South Weston) Candidate Pledges

On this page, you will find a regularly updated list of all the candidates who have registered to run for Toronto City Council in this ward in the 2018 election. We have asked all of them to take the following Candidate Pledge:

As a candidate in the 2018 Toronto election, I pledge that, if elected, I will support, advance, and vote in favour of those actions required for ranked ballots to be used in the 2022 Toronto elections.

Below, you'll see their responses. For incumbent councillors, we've also included a summary of their voting history on ranked ballots. For more detail on our Candidate Pledge campaign, please click here.


Lekan Olawoye has taken the pledge

"With more and more candidates signing up to represent their communities, it’s harder than ever before for voters to choose a single person that represents them. It’s time for a system that reflects the changing perspectives of our voters and their representatives. We also need to continue to engage the community in public consultation to ensure the right electoral system is in place."


Chiara Padovani has taken the pledge

"I support a ranked ballot system because it’s the fairest way to elect our representatives. Ranked ballots are more inclusive and give the voter more choice."
