Well, after months of fighting for Adam Giambrone to be exiled from Toronto, it appears that he has finally given in!! Congratulations to every Torontonian out there!! There may be hope after all!! ;)
Here's the story from the Globe and Mail:
Adam Giambrone ends bid for Toronto council re-election
TTC Chairman Adam Giambrone has decided not to run for re-election, putting an end to his council career but not his political aspirations.
The 33-year-old councillor intends to take a breather from public life for a few years before attempting a comeback, likely at Queen’s Park or Parliament Hill, he said in an exclusive interview with The Globe and Mail.
An archeologist and former president of the federal NDP, Mr. Giambrone said he’s already received at least one job offer. He plans to pursue an international project or a local job outside the elected realm now that he’s confirmed he won’t defend his Davenport seat.
Kevin Beaulieu, Mr. Giambrone’s executive assistant, confirmed last night that he will run for the seat.
Mr. Giambrone’s decision closes a chapter that began with high hopes for a wunderkind elected at 26 and ended with a disgraced withdrawal from the mayoral race.
With Mayor Miller on the outs and Adam Giambrone deciding not to re-run for City Council, Toronto is finally looking like it's ready to clean house and shape up!
Now we just need Rob Ford to win the Election for the next Mayor of Toronto and we'll be on our way!!
