As the first Mayor of Toronto in 1834, William Lyon Mackenzie faced a series of challenges: accusations of bias from a divided and hostile council; a catastrophic accident at City Hall; the deadly return of cholera to Toronto, and perhaps his biggest challenge of all: building a city bureaucracy from scratch. The exhibit explores an eventful year in the life of City, as shown through the ups and downs of Toronto’s first Mayor.
