John Tory wins another term as the Mayor of Toronto capturing 63 per cent of the vote while Jennifer Keesmaat got second place with 23 per cent.
But who got third place? You probably don’t know that it was Faith Goldy, a mayoral candidate that was restricted from Campaigning over the last month.
Bell Media broke the law and denied to run ads from Goldy disallowing her message to get out.
Our Campaign is blocked from all debates…
NOW, our ads are banned by @JohnTory's friends in the corporate media.
Is this democracy?
Or are Toronto’s elites illegally engineering our election?

Bell Media wasn’t the only one meddling in this election, Google also denied Goldy’s ads.
“Our support team will not be able to give you any more specifics on the suspension.”@Google isn’t even trying to make their censorship of the Faith Goldy Campaign look legit!

Not only were ads denied but Canadian media didn’t report any news on Faith Goldy, there was a media blackout and reporters were told not to report on her, see if here.
Was this election rigged? What do you think?
