Today, two races for commissioners of French-language schools are void.
On Saturday, Toronto City Clerk John D. Elvidge announced that the election for the French-language Catholic school trustee, Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir (Ward 4, Toronto East) is canceled after determining that a second candidate is not eligible to hold office.
“The election for this office will not be held on October 24 and a by-election will be held instead,” the city said in a press release, noting that Elvidge’s decision is based on “new information obtained on Friday evening”.
On Friday, the city announced that one of the three candidates was ineligible to hold office. The school board’s Ward 4 boundaries include 11 Toronto wards: Toronto-Danforth, Don Valley West, Don Valley East, Don Valley North, Beaches-East York, Scarborough Southwest, Scarborough Centre, Scarborough-Agincourt, Scarborough North, Scarborough- Guildwood and Scarborough – Rouge Park.
On October 19, Elvidge announced that the election for the French-language public school trustee at Conseil Scolaire Viamonde (Quartier 3, Center) was void after determining that one of the two candidates was ineligible for a position. A by-election will also take place there. The school board’s Ward 3 boundaries include six Toronto wards: Spadina-Fort York, University-Rosedale, Toronto-St. Paul’s, Toronto Centre, Toronto-Danforth and Beaches-East York.
