Another magical Toronto moment...

...where, apparently... there's no such thing as a bad boy...
Once written off as a “dead fish”, ex-con Mario Gentile is poised to make a back-door return to civic politics.

And the white knight who’s giving the former convict a helping hand is his former rival, Coun. Frank Di Giorgio, who represents York South-Weston.
Just something else to consider, while you're writing out that outrageous cheque for municipal taxes.
Gentile was convicted of breach of trust and accepting secret commissions in 1994 for taking money and benefits from developer Lou Charles while a Metro Toronto councillor.

He was also found guilty of tax evasion and pleaded guilty to breach of trust in a separate incident involving a U.S. firm that wanted to sell garbage trucks to North York.
