MAYOR TORY: “(I DID NOT FALL) OFF SOME TURNIP TRUCK PULLING INTO DOWNTOWN TORONTO.”

TORY&FORD2 Mayor JOHN TORY has drawn the proverbial line in the sand.  He will not help former city councillor DOUG FORD raise any money to pay off his campaign debts. Mr. Tory made it clear that Ford’s attack ads during last fall’s election campaign offended him deeply, and he’d be nuts to “raise money which would finance, in effect, quite directly the running of ads that called into question my character.”

In the past the Mayor has helped several former rivals for the mayor’s chair – David Miller, David Soknacki, Jane Pitfield, and even Rob Ford (Doug’s notorious brother).  But Doug Ford’s personal attacks crossed the line.

TORY&FORD1“I think people would call into question whether I was thinking straight if I went out and helped raise money to pay off a debt incurred to run ads to attack me over and over again, all day – most of the money was spent on that,” said the Mayor.
