    Friday Fill(ibuster): "a great place, our best place"

    Wednesday saw an unprecedented attack on Canada’s capital; the murder of one man at the National War Memorial and a shocking storming of Parliament’s Centre Block which police and journalists are still trying to piece together. But let’s take a cue from Wherry and the Globe editorial board—let’s not throw our routines out the window too much in the wake of the attack. Lots besides went on this week in democracy news and much of it deserves another look. So let’s get back to business.

    Making the grade: EPCitizens hand out marks to mayoral candidates

    With a week left to submit a nomination for EPCitizen and a few days left before the Toronto municipal election, we thought we'd share a neat piece of work from a current nominee for 2014 EPCitizen, Toronto's Devon Ostrom. The "Mayoral Report Card", produced by Manifesto, Grassroots Youth Collaborative and BeautifulCity.ca, seeks to evaluate the Toronto mayoral candidates on issues related to youth, hopefully empowering Toronto's young people to get out, vote and make informed choices while they are at it.

Terri is founder and organizer of grassroots not-for-profit Why Should I Care? She’s currently running for Toronto City Council in Ward 20 and her election is coming up on October 27. Samara caught up with Terri on the campaign trail to hear how she got engaged in politics and what everyday political citizenship is all about.

    Friday Fill(ibuster): Chowing down on electoral burgers

    A contender for Toronto city council tells us that it's a eat-or-be-eaten world, Bruce Anderson claims that we are political grazers rather than feasters and a couple Toronto Argonauts chow down on electoral burgers. With municipal elections on the menu, we serve up some tasty democracy news.
