"The rookie Ward 3 councillor is another standout, earning an A on CBC's report card."

"Bortolin has become known as “the alley light guy.” Residents in other core neighbourhoods like Sandwich and Ford City call him asking for alley lights. The more he gets beat up, the more supporters he gets – because they know the work he does and the heat he takes for them. It’s like he’s some hero."

"He’s a standout. From the farmers’ market to picking up couches left in alleys, Bortolin understands the small but important things that make a city, and he fights for them. He won’t get many points for fighting school closings in core neighbourhoods, but he did it because he understands that closing those schools kills those neighbourhoods. He’s one of the most progressive, hardest-working councillors, and he tells it like it is."
