Ward 23 along with a portion of Ward 24 and a portion of Ward 25 were combined to create the new Ward 18 – Willowdale for the 2018 election. John Filion was elected councillor for Ward 23 in 1998 after the creation of the ward. Filion was set to retire in 2018, but decided to run for re-election once the Doug Ford government passed legislation cutting council to 25 wards from 47.
