John Tory: Does Toronto Really Need Another Liberal Running for Mayor?

January 7th, 2010

John Tory has apparently decided not to run for mayor of Toronto in the upcoming municipal election. Reading the story, what struck me was the people who managed his previous campaigns:

Jeff Bangs, who managed Tory’s 2004 campaign for the Conservative leadership, decided to run former Liberal provincial minister George Smitherman’s campaign for mayor.

As well, Rocco Rossi, who managed Tory’s failed bid for the mayor’s chair in 2003, announced his own candidacy.

Jeff Bangs is now off to run former Provincial Liberal cabinet minister George Smitherman’s campaign. Rocco Rossi is the former executive director for the Liberal Party of Canada. You might remember him for his Kayaking to save the Liberals last summer.

Russ Campbell comments today on the fate of the Provincial PC brand here in Ontario:

The lost years under John Tory may be too hard to overcome.

The reason for that Russ, is that he was never a Conservative, just a Liberal in PC clothing.

    You forgot this one: Tory is taking over the job left vacant by death of Liberal insider David Pecault. Apparently, Tory was asked to take over the chair position left vacant by Pecault. Obviously Tory is a liberal and that is why he never went anywhere in conservative politics, he could not garner any right of centre votes. All the same he would have been the best mayor of the lot as I believe he is considered somewhat of a fiscal conservative. What Toronto really needs is somebody to slash spending and Tory may have done this. Now we can only hope that somebody else like Rob Ford etc., runs for office. Still Toronto has been invade and taken over by leftists as they plunder what social wealth that still exists here. (real conservative)
