Leadership during Toronto's Mayoral Byelection
Scarborough voters had a terrific voice to exercise during the closest mayoral race in years. SCRO, along with partners Scarborough Business Association, Scarborough Civic Action Network and Scarbrough United Communities, organized one of the campaigns premier mayoral debates, broadcast on CP24 and attracting 400 people to University of Toronto Scarborough.
Attended and covered by all major media, the debate helped bring new appreciation for Scarborough, the community’s issues and how eastern Toronto fits into the puzzle called Toronto.
After the debate, the organizations spearheaded a #ScarboroughVotes campaign, drawing further attention to the important role Scarborough voters had to play in this election.
Throughout the campaign, SCRO did not support any one candidate.
