#BuildTheVisionTO 2018 Election Survey Responses – Councillor Candidates

Eighty city council candidates completed the survey. A number chose only to leave comments, rather than yes/no responses. Each question and the responses received are listed below, along with the paragraph rationale that was provided to the candidates (‘Read more’). A specific ward or candidate can be found by using the search bar at the bottom of each chart. Candidates that did not respond are not listed. You can also download a spreadsheet of all city council candidate responses.
