Canada's least popular mayors

Tremblay and Ford win the ignominious prize

Montreal and Toronto are home to the country’s two most unpopular mayors. Montreal’s Gerald Tremblay won the unpopularity derby with an approval rating of just 32 per cent. But Toronto’s controversial Rob Ford wasn’t far behind, with just 37 per cent of respondents’ approval. On the opposite side of the spectrum, long-time Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion took the top spot in the Forum Research Inc. poll with an approval rating of 78 per cent, with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi finishing a close second at 76 per cent.
