JOHN TORY, TORONTO’S MAYOR, IS PLANNING ON A THIRD TERM AT CITY HALL – NOT SURPRISING!

Within Toronto’s history this 67-year-old will no doubt become the city’s longest serving mayor. Mr. Tory’s goal is to continue his current policies. Barbara Hackett, his wife, has already given her approval for a third term. Administering an increasingly expensive metropolis is a challenge, but he’s been facing no serious opposition – even from City Council. Among John’s present achievements – transit construction, housing affordability, street improvements, a recovering economy, and setting up partnerships. There’ve been no protests so far when the mayor announced he would run again. Polls have shown already that he’ll be a formidable candidate in the October 24th municipal election. Others are doubtless waiting to decide if they have the nerve, finances and ability to compete. We’ll wait and see who will be directing Canada’s largest city.
