TORONTO – Long-time city councillor Pam McConnell has won re-election in Toronto’s Ward 28, Toronto Centre-Rosedale.

McConnell is known for her years of service (she was first elected in 1982 as a school board trustee), her time as chair of the Toronto Police Services Board and twenty years as a city councillor.

She’s also known as the councillor Mayor Rob Ford bulldozed in council chamber last November.

Ford knocked down McConnell while barreling through chamber to rush to his brother’s aid (Doug was locked in a shouting match with spectators at the time). McConnell said in June she was still undergoing physiotherapy, recovering from the fall.

“As somebody who was crushed by the mayor and is still in physiotherapy, I wish you all good luck and I’d hope that some of you would stay well away from the crush of the cameras,” she said.

McConnell won the 2010 election handily with nearly 63 per cent of the vote. She’s running in 2014 against 13 other candidates.
