Some pretty funny discussion about the fashion-sense of our councillors!! Since everything of substance has been stated by other posters, I'll comment on this aspect.

Why do councillors wear suits anyway? Why is there a dress code (if there is one)? They are there to represent their riding -- not sure about you, but even in my suburban riding, the last time I saw someone wearing a suit was at a wedding.

Show up in clean clothes and tend to personal hygiene. That should be the only mandate and/or expectation. (Personally, I think it'd be cool to live in a city where councillors showed up in jeans and a hoodie -- maybe even a cool lid, too.) The game of dress-up only furthers ideals of elitism.
