City council[edit]

The 2000 ward map

The city council elections were eventful. Redistricting increased the number of wards from 28 to 44, but each ward only elected a single councillor, reducing the number of councillors from 56 to 44. This created several battles between incumbents such as Gloria Lindsay Luby against Mario Giansante, David Miller versus Bill Saundercook, and Milton Berger against Anne Johnston. For the most part, incumbents were re-elected: the major exception was Etobicoke where three incumbents -- Blake Kinahan, Elizabeth Brown, and Bruce Sinclair —were defeated. Over all, the elections shifted the council somewhat to the left.
