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
As in the previous series "Da Vinci's Inquest" the character of Dominic Da Vinci was based on the real-life B.C. Chief Coroner Larry Campbell, who after his tenure of coroner acted as a technical adviser on the show. Like the character of Dominic Da Vinci, Larry Campbell was elected mayor of Vancouver in 2002.

And just when you thought it could not get any better WOW !!!
I have been a DaVinci fan for years since the first episode in fact. But this new season opener just blew me away it has to be the best yet.
I have never, to my knowledge seen a show so full of biting socially relevant issues in a drama format before. This is not season 8 of DaVinci's Inquest, this is the beginning of a whole new form of Television Drama.
I liked the way that there was no long drawn out explanation of how Dominic DaVinci got to be The Mayor of Vancouver, And that he was thrown to the LIONS on his first day in office without even having unpacked his stuff. I have lived in and around Vancouver for 25 years and have seen some of the Social and economic hardship that exists there.
My hat is off to all Cast and Crew and Production team you have outdone yourself once again.
