Toronto voters replaced their notorious mayor, Rob Ford, on Monday and rejected an attempt by his brother to take the city's top job, electing instead a conservative politician and broadcaster who promised to unite a city divided by four years of scandal and vitriol.

John Tory, a former Progressive Conservative party leader in Ontario, won the election in a closer-than-expected race, according to the city's election website, fighting off a strong challenge by the mayor's brother, Doug Ford.
