Well said indeed Ryan. You guys should put a like/dislike feature on the articles/blog posts themselves. Like

I went to bed fealing frustrated, even defeated; and I wasn't even running.

Butani lost. Tetley lost. Jelly lost. Only McHattie won out of the wards I was really paying close attention to.

I woke up angry though. Perhaps if those I had hoped would take the chair made it into office, I would have felt that I could just sit back and watch those I believed in, fight for me. Although I still wish those three would have stepped into chairs at the table, you are right Ryan. Our civic engagement cannot end here.

Thank-you to RTH, all the writers and commentors, for teaching us all about the imnportance of getting involved in our city, and for keeping us informed. Even up to the final moments, The Spec had a photo of the three front-runners on the site like it was all about them. In the end it was as they did place 1,2, and 3, but they summed up for themselves, what defined their coverage of this election.

Maybe one day we will have a candidate amongst the front-runners, who will step up to the media such as The Spec and say "You know, this election is about more than Dick, Jane, and me. Cover us all, or don't cover the election at all."
