John Tory's Massive Flip-Flop Proves He's Not Mayoral Material

Remember when John Tory's top priority was a subway relief line? He was so keen about building the Yonge Street Relief Line. So very keen, he often sounded like Rob Ford, demonizing Olivia for wanting a mix of above- and below-ground rail. Irrespective of expert advice, he vowed to start "immediately," because it's "job one." Ah, the clarity of yesterday, as printed in the Toronto Star on April 4: "I said at my [campaign] launch I would make the Yonge Street Relief Line priority number one. And I meant it." Not so. Now there's a new priority and faster than you can say Eurasia was never at war with Oceania, yesterday's priority is gone. Poof.

What Ford Supporters Get Wrong About Olivia Chow

It's hard to know where to start with Mitch Wolfe's piece. But polling basics is as good as any. To support his random chats in coffee shops, which he says show Olivia's support eroding, he cites a Forum Research poll. All polls have a margin of error. Every poll I've seen says one thing, very clearly. Our city wants a new mayor. That's why Olivia has been able to hold three large events. The three largest events of any campaign so far. It's why online engagement with Olivia's campaign is growing exponentially. And it's why there are lots of volunteers, in all corners of the city.

Why Fiscally Responsible Torontonians Won't Vote For John Tory

Mitch Wolfe | Posted 04.28.2014 | Canada
Mitch Wolfe

Tory's best hope for victory is that he must go after Chow's downtown support immediately. Let me throw another log on the fire. My thesis is not only that the right has abandoned Tory, and will not vote for him in significant numbers, but that Tory has actively shifted left to go after mushy Liberal support. In other words, John Tory, in the first days of his campaign, has revealed himself to be, what many of us true fiscal conservatives, have long suspected: that John Tory is a mushy downtown Liberal elitist in Tory clothing.
