Least surprising political endorsement ever: John Tory supports Sandra Bussin’s opponent

John Tory’s clashes with Sandra Bussin are hardly news, but would he go so far as to endorse her opponent? Apparently, yes. In what is perhaps less of a straight-up approval than a mischievous attempt at retribution, John Tory is giving the thumbs up to Ward 32 challenger and Beach busybody Mary-Margaret McMahon. And if that news doesn’t shock, perhaps this will: Tory feels strongly enough about unseating Bussin that he’s willing to spend his Saturday morning canvassing the Beach with new-found political gal pal McMahon.

No doubt the anti-Bussin seeds were sown last year when the four-term councillor—a.k.a. “Sandra from Toronto” (see video, at left)—made her ill-advised phone call to Tory’s CFRB radio show. Her calling David Miller “the most brilliant municipal politician in the country” was just slightly less hysterical than her claim that she didn’t work at city hall and her calling Tory “a three-time loser.” For Bussin, who’s already under fire for her involvement in the Boardwalk Pub licensing affair, this can’t be good news.
