Former Vancouver City Coroner, Dominic Da Vinci, has just been elected Mayor of Vancouver. Opinionated, Mayor Da Vinci tries to implement some controversial policies for the City, including a red light district for prostitutes, safe injection sites for the troubled drug dependent population in the Downtown Eastside, and cross-training between the police department and fire & rescue. With the assistance of his hard working aides, Rita Mah and Sam Berger, Da Vinci is not averse to bending the rules or making back room deals to achieve his goals. But he must also work in holding together his caucus of City Councillors, and dealing with an uncooperative Police Chief who is at political and philosophical odds with the Mayor. Written by

DaVinci's City Hall is a great show, there is just one huge problem - I could enjoy it much more if I could see what is going on . Why oh Why is it so dark. Each week I wait for some light to come on, but it never happens. We even got a big new 44 inch TV, it helps some , but I am still in the dark. The show is my favorite, the plot has me following and interested and looking forward to it every week. Perhaps it would be better as a radio show. Thanks for listening to my rant. I hate to make an unfavorable comment about a great Canadian show, but there it is. I wonder if there will be another season, and hope there will be.I have come to know all the actors in their parts , and look forward to seeing the development of the story lines and the characters .
