Doug Ford has his boot on Toronto’s neck, so why is John Tory so complacent?..

Are you encouraged and heartened by the new Toronto city council — cut to half its size, but not its cost; led by an executive committee that’s loaded with the mayor’s suburban bootlickers; weak in gender representation; and saddled with the same intractable problems of 20 years ago?

Only the mindlessly optimistic among you can find comfort in the posed picture of the 26-member council as Mayor John Tory “leads” the new members to the municipal gallows.

Like it was in 1998, the Premier of Ontario has his boots on Toronto’s neck — only this time the mayor is almost an accomplice, malleable to the point of being complicit.
