Over the past month, Phillip Dwight Morgan has been writing a special series for rabble.ca called Toronto Votes 2018. Phillip Dwight Morgan is a Toronto-based journalist and writer and was rabble.ca's first Jack Layton Journalism for Change Fellow.
This fall we asked him to do a series of stories about the election. You can read his series here. To wrap it up, rabble.ca podcast executive producer Victoria Fenner talked to him at the new Centre for Social Innovative building at 192 Spadina in Toronto.
They talked about the surprises in the campaign, the effect of the intervention by Doug Ford to shrink the size of council, the rise of racist alt-right and the two Torontos -- the glitzy city trying to say "we're world class" and the Toronto of those who live on the margins just trying to survive.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
