John Tory thinks Toronto is, if not world class, at least “really really good”

The National Post got mayor and level-headed individual John Tory to weigh in on a continual source of civic anxiety: whether or not Toronto is, in fact, “world class.” True to form, Tory’s reply was as polished and as answer-free as a zen koan. “I don’t consume myself with it,” Tory told the paper. “I think there are some things we do very very well, but regardless of how well we do them and whether it qualifies as ‘world class,’ to the extent anybody knows what the definition of that is, I would say that we know that we’re not good enough.” Tory didn’t end on that downer note, though. “I think we are a really really good place to live,” he added, “and that’s validated by just about every list that’s ever published.”
