Hi, this is Casey Taylor live blogging today’s Toronto mayoral debate hosted by the Empire Club of Canada.
Doug Ford has just announced he won’t be participating, citing the ticket price of $80 per-person.
It was to be Ford’s second mayoral debate following a raucous encounter with John Tory and Olivia Chow last Tuesday.
The debate appears to be proceeding with just Tory and Chow and I’ll be live blogging here. Stand by.
