The votes are in.

In a surprising turn of events, controversial mayoral candidate Faith Goldy has come in third in the 2018 municipal election, behind Jennifer Keesmaat and incumbent John Tory respectively.

Goldy, who has been referred to as a white nationalist and far-right candidate, was ousted from debates throughout the election, and major media outlets refused to run her campaign ads.

In the end, Goldy received 3.40% of the votes, well over 10,000 votes ahead of progressive candidate Saron Gebresellassi.

Even after the results came in, Twitter continues to churn out very mixed reactions. Here’s what the people of Toronto had to say.
