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.”

I’m not sure why his answer is considered “answer-free” in your mind. What were you expecting? “Yes” or “No”?
Agreed. I think Toronto Life is annoyed that his soundbite was over 10 seconds long.
I’d rather have Tory’s honest answer (essentially, “I don’t know because that’s difficult to define”) than Rob Ford’s “YES ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, WE HAVE THE BEST EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD EVER, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT” nonsense.
Anything Toronto Life has to say about John Tory (or Yawn Tory as they prefer) is completely worthless. They’re just butt-hurt that we don’t have a mayor who’s mooning people in the club district or hoovering lines off a hooker’s a$$ late at night in his city hall office. Tory just isn’t good for the sleaze journalism business.
