Well-known Toronto author Shawn Micallef discusses his recent book, Frontier City: Toronto on the Verge of Greatness. The author travelled Toronto with twelve non-incumbent candidates seeking election in the 2014 civic election as they campaigned for votes. He saw the candidates' neighbourhoods from their perspectives, thereby opening up Toronto for him in a new way. With the next civic election to be held in 2018, the book offers a timely look at issues that will shape Toronto's future. Copies of Frontier City will be available for purchase.
