Calgary’s 2021 municipal election night turned into a two-person mayoral race between Jyoti Gondek and Jeromy Farkas.

The two headquarters for the evening had divergent philosophies. The Farkas campaign allowed supporters to attend, whereas the Gondek limited attendees to media and key campaign staff.
