Why should Tory run for Mayor??

I am trying really hard to think why Tory should run. Why he should stick his neck out for a bunch of people who clearly want their cake and to eat it too; all in the same sentence. This morning’s article in the Toronto Star once again repeated the call for Tory to run against Miller. Let’s look at the facts in 2003 Tory ran against Miller for Toronto’s Mayoral raise. Toronto accusing him of being a little two conservative and not Progressive enough to run the city snubbed him. Then in the provincial election when he ran on the most Progressive platform since Davis Toronto snubbed him again. The same Torontonians who claimed to be oh so progressive- fighters of Gay and Lesbian rights, Minority rights and labour rights- suddenly began bigoted and openly denied rights to religious students wish have been entrenched in the BNA Act since 1867.

These same Torontonians are currently feeling snubbed by there own precious Miller, angry because he dared to drag them through a Union Strike which affected their garbage collection. And to add insult to injury ended up giving into the same union. Torontonians are shocked that he should be union friendly. WAKE UP TORONTO!!! You elected a union friendly person, he started out as union friendly and he will retire union friendly. Does anyone remember his days at Metro??

Maybe three is truly a charm but really I can’t see why Tory should stick his neck out for Toronto. Even if the whole city came crawling on its hands and knees, I would not blame him for thanking them and then forcefully declining.

Toronto go to Smitherman, ask him. See if he wants’ to do deal with the ugly Medusa that is Toronto.
