SpecĀuĀlaĀtion is that the forĀmer Chief of the Toronto PoĀlice SerĀvice and forĀmer ComĀmisĀsioner of the OnĀtario ProvinĀcial PoĀlice could be conĀsidĀerĀing a run at beĀing mayor of Vaughan, OnĀtario, the city imĀmeĀdiĀately north of Toronto.
ApĀparĀently, this specĀuĀlaĀtion was prompted by roboĀcalls that were reĀceived on May 15 by resĀiĀdents of the reĀgion askĀing whether they would vote for FanĀtino, or the inĀcumĀbent Vaughan Mayor MauĀrĀizio BevilacĀqua. InĀterĀestĀingly, BevilacĀqua had preĀviĀously held the fedĀeral ridĀing of Vaughan as a LibĀeral MP beĀfore reĀsignĀing to run for mayor.
