(I thought I would re-post an updated version of this list for those who are interested...)
As things heat up in the race for the next Mayor of Toronto, I'm sure people will be looking to review the latest list of Candidates and their platforms and etc.. So I took the liberty of looking that up for you all, and posting the links and information here.

There was some video going around today of bush fires in Brazil turning into a Fire Tornado (or a "Fire Whirl").
I found a clip on YouTube, so if you didn't see it, here you go:

Toronto's Superman, Rob Ford, seems to be pulling away from the rest of the Toronto Mayoral Candidates faster than a speeding bullet!
The villains in this Mayoral Race have thrown everything they can at him, pulling all kinds of things from his past and misconstruing things from his present to try and manipulate Torontonians, but as stated in a previous post (Smitherman's Desperate Political Games Boring Toronto Voters), trying to discredit Ford is like trying to discredit Superman... The people will just not go for it.
The latest poll released by Ipsos-Reid (commissioned by NewsTalk 1010 and Global News) had the following results based on a phone survey of 400 people conducted this past weekend (SOURCE: Ford remains in lead):

Wow, that 4th CP24 Toronto Mayoral Debate was an interesting one, especially for Rob Ford, and it left me (and I'm sure everyone else who watched it) with one burning question:
In a city that celebrates diversity to the extent that Toronto does, will Rob Ford's comments on Immigration hurt him in this 2010 Toronto Mayoral Race?
If you didn't catch Ford's comments in the CP24 Mayoral debate, the entire debate is available to watch for free on the CP24 - Mayoral Election 2010 - Your Vote website at the following link:

Depending on where you live, and whether you want to be rich and still working, or rich and just relaxing, you're looking at needing to have between $2 Million to $12 Million in the bank collecting interest, and between $100,000 and $300,000 coming in annually to support your "rich" lifestyle.
CNN Money had a great article the other day on how rich you have to be in order to be considered "rich" by Americans.
Here's the story:

Poor George Smitherman... I actually feel for him. I mean, how do you take down Toronto's Superman, Rob Ford? How do you discredit Superman??! Well, if anyone could pull off the Lex Luthoresque task of trying to do so, it would be Furious George Smitherman.
