Best Haligonian Closest To Heaven

Peter Kelly

You picked mayor Kelly as Haligonian Closest to Heaven. Runner-up Dita Parlow isn’t sure you’re right. “I don’t know him, but my first response would be: why?” she says. “It must be because he’s saved us from the dangers of second-hand smoke. Or, from the reign of Victor Syperek.” Asked if she deserves the title instead, Parlow laughs: “Do I think I’m close to heaven? I don’t know, they’re probably going to interview me first before I can get in.”

1st runner-up: Dita Parlow

2nd runner-up: Alexa McDonough
