In his Monday column, The Globe's Marcus Gee reminded Toronto voters that it's no time for cynicism - every vote counts in today's tightly contested mayoral election.
"This has been the most compelling Toronto election in memory, a roller-coastering, lip-gnawing affair that could go either way when polls close at 8 p.m.," he wrote.
"The mayor of Toronto matters. Thanks to amalgamation, the mayor leads a megacity of 2.6 million people... No other single politician in Canada will have as many people put an X beside his name - not just his party's name but his own name - than the winner in this election."
