John Tory ~ A Great Mayor Toronto will Never Have!

January 4, 2014 - Updated: January 7, 2014


John Tory 


Why do I say this? John Tory is “gun-shy”! You see, he lost a couple of elections and now he likely won’t do it.


So, while there is a great deal of speculation as to whether he will run, not run, stay on the sidelines, enter the contest later, come up the middle etc, John Tory in order to be successful in the mayoralty campaign needs to commit early .


If he waits, momentum will develop under the other candidates, their support will grow, voters will become committed.



I don’t know John Tory personally, or I’d ask him to run, but others, who are very close to him, have asked, and he’s non-committal at this point.


The campaign time period of 10 months is rather ridiculous. For a federal election, it is 37 days. If that's enough to elect a Prime Minister, then that should be enough time to choose a Mayor. Very few people would have the best part of  year to campaign. And, undertake such a formidable task without the backing and support of a political party.


All in all, John Tory has what it takes to be Toronto’s next Mayor. He has the right combination of qualities, he sees both sides of the picture, he is a person who is creative in achieving compromise. He has the respect of the voters and elected officials alike. Indeed, those are leadership qualities.


Although John Tory is a "Conservative", having lead the provincial party, his views are quite liberal and his "politics" seem to fall in the middle. This is appealing to the electorate.


 Even though I don’t live in the City of Toronto, and can’t vote for him, I would:


  1. work for him in his campaign, and
  2. donate money to his campaign.


Hopefully, John Tory will run.


I would like to see momentum build behind him as the candidate to beat for Toronto's next Mayor.


Let’s see what happens!
