There are more than 100 candidates running for mayor of Toronto, including one dog


The race to become the next mayor of Toronto has drawn more than 100 candidates, including one canine.

The dog, named “Mayor Doggie,” was registered by his owner, who says he is running on a platform of “being a good boy and making sure all the other dogs in the city are taken care of.”

Other candidates include a variety of political hopefuls, ranging from established politicians to newcomers. The race is expected to be a close one, with the top two candidates advancing to a runoff election in October.

The election is set to take place in October, and the winner will replace current mayor John Tory, who is not seeking re-election.
