This riding has never been specifically responsive to fine details and especially on the civic level. We've had decades of deplorable representation. If you look through some of the alderman that have represented Millwoods through the decades you begin to understand how little infrastructure it has and why LRT projected to arrive in 1979 never came.

Sohi will almost certainly get re-elected. But shouldn't. He's heard my views as have previous representatives. It often feels as if it doesn't matter.

You're right with Diotte as well. There were a few others too. On elections campaigns and taking from that there were about 5-6 elected representatives that were opposed to public funding of an arena. A position that didn't end up being representative in subsequent aldermanic voting.
