Karen Stintz has pulled out of the race to become the next mayor of Toronto.

After the rumour surfaced in the National Post Thursday morning, Stintz addressed the issue and made her announcement at 11 a.m.

She told reporters that she became frustrated without gaining ground in the polls and that had a financial impact on her ability to run a campaign.

In the latest poll released by Forum Research, Stintz was at the bottom of the pack with just 4 percent support.

She says she will also not be running for re-election as a councillor, saying her immediate plans include getting through the next council meeting, and getting her kids ready for school.
