Wards to watch

Another map for work: an early map of Toronto wards where the incumbent isn’t running again. We should probably get out of the habit of referring to these as ‘open wards,’ but the power of incumbency at the ward level is such that competitive races only usually happen when a councillor doesn’t seek re-election for some reason.

Spacing counts eight of these, while I count nine. Nominations haven’t closed yet (Mark Grimes only filed his papers yesterday) so this is a work in progress.
