TORONTO, October 18, 2018 – Ward 18 debate reveals Danny DeSantis as a major contender for the seat that John Filion has held for 28 years.

During their recent debate, which included Danny DeSantis, John Filion, Lily Cheng, Norm Gardner, Sonny Cho, Sam Moini, Saman Tabasi Nejad and David Mousavi, Danny drew the most enthusiastic response from the audience. Besides debating policies, Danny brought into question John Filion’s past remarks made toward the Italian and Iranian communities.

“If you want a change in Willowdale, go out and VOTE for me… I support ALL communities!” said Danny.

On the streets of Willowdale, it appears that Danny DeSantis has done the most work as he has a lot of support with his signs. Danny may very well be ahead of John Filion, unless you believe the polls.

Have you ever wondered why polls are released just days before the elections? In the US, suppression polls are apparently designed to discourage voters from going to the voting stations.

It was recently announced on CP24 that John Filion was leading in the polls. “If people listen to polls rather than vote, then the incumbent wins,” said Danny. “I am canvassing the streets by knocking on doors every single day for months and I know the feeling in Willowdale about John Filion. People should just go and vote! It is the most important thing that you, as a citizen, can do to make a change,” said Danny.

Danny’s policies include:

  • Improve 401 Access on Yonge Street
  • Extend TTC Subway Service
  • Increase Police Protection
  • Create Bike Paths along Beecroft or Doris instead of Yonge
  • Improve Infrastructure: Roads, Sewers and Power
  • Promote Business Development along Sheppard
  • Expand Affordable Housing and Daycare
  • Champion Fiscal Responsibility and Accountability
  • Create a Pedestrian Sub-Path for Year Round Access
