George Smitherman’s husband, Christopher Peloso, found dead
Christopher Peloso, husband of one-time mayoral candidate and former deputy premier George Smitherman, has been found dead, according to a statement posted earlier this morning on Smitherman’s website. Toronto Police had asked the public for assistance finding Peloso on Sunday evening. He was last seen on Sunday at 11 a.m., in the Bloor and Lansdowne area.
The two men married in 2007 and had adopted two children together. Smitherman’s statement calls Peloso a “son and brother, a husband and father of three.”
Peloso was also reported missing in September. Police found him, alive but confused, 36 hours later near some railway tracks at Dupont and Lansdowne. Very few details about Peloso’s mental state have been reported, but Smitherman’s statement says that he and his family “will find comfort somehow in knowing that [Peloso] has found peace from the depression that has wreaked havoc on his mind.”

my condolences to George and his family through this rough time.
Very sad. The Holiday season is hard on some people. Many can’t manage the higher expectations this time of the year brings. They often feel they can’t live up to them. I do hope the remaining family members have enough support from friends and family to get through this!
Very sad end to a young mans life, deepest sympathies to George and their children,
