John Tory will celebrate his 61st birthday by doing what he loves: working
At a speech this morning for the Conference Board of Canada, Toronto mayor and serious person John Tory weighed in on a number of the day’s hot-button topics: tearing down the Gardiner (he’s against it), Action Bronson’s upcoming concert in Yonge-Dundas Square (he’d prefer the rapper not perform on city property), and Uber (he’s for it). He also took the opportunity to update reporters on another issue of critical importance: his birthday plans. Tory, who turns 61 today, approached the topic with the gravity we’ve come to expect from Mayor Fun. “I am working,” he said, according to the Star’s Jennifer Pagliaro. “I might see my family for dinner.” Ex-mayor Rob Ford also has a birthday today; he’s turning 46—and, though he’s recovering from surgery, is probably having a lot more fun.
