Outgoing Councillor Mike Del Grande wins a spot on the Toronto Catholic District School Board

TORONTO - Departing city councillor Mike Del Grande is returning the Toronto Catholic District School Board -- a school board he says has slipped in its faith-based teachings.

Ward 7 Scarborough-North York, which had been held by his son, John, who decided not to run again, was captured by Del Grande on Monday night, defeating three other candidates with an overwhelming 64% of the vote.
