Where to watch the election results in Toronto tonight

Oct 21 2019, 12:35 pm

It’s October 21. Which means that after you go out and vote in your riding, there’s a solid chance you’re going to want to watch the election results.

But if you’re a part of the masses that are living without cable television, and you prefer to either celebrate — or commiserate — with a crowd, you may prefer to head to an election viewing party rather than stream the results at home.

And if that’s the case, these are the Toronto spots that will be screening the election results across the city tonight:
