Toronto-centric Media: Gag Me With A Stick!

It has been impossible for several weeks now to pick up a so-called "national" newspaper in Canada or tune in to a "national" newscast on TV without hearing about the Toronto mayoralty contest.  Guess what, news barons?  WE DON'T CARE WHO BECOMES MAYOR OF TORONTO!  The rest of Canada could give a rough rat's ass who wins this contest.  We're tired of constantly being bombarded with Toronto minutiae - Toronto this and Toronto that.  (For example, who outside narcissistic T.O. needs daily reports about its film festival?  Answer: NOBODY!)  Toronto is not the Canada of today, it is the faded star of yesterday.  Canadian media moguls would be well-advised to get off their duffs and look elsewhere for something important to fill their (our) front pages.
