Mayor John Tory

Tory undermines police chief with carding stance

TORONTO – John Tory’s miraculous conversion on carding may win him support among the assorted left-wing politicians, community organizers and political has-beens that called for just such a move, but it raises critical questions about the mayor’s judgment.

Why, for example, would he choose to cut the legs out from newly-appointed Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders? Saunders, the city’s first black chief, has said he supports the controversial procedure that some claim is a form of racial profiling.

    That is the vascillating Tory we all knew from Talk Radio. Trying to please everybody ……see how long that will work.

    • Exactly.

      true, I used to hear him do a 3 minute speech before a topic to show which sides he wasn’t on but didn’t say what he supported .
      The Buts and How Evers made it hard to follow what he stance was, he sounded like a CEO that feared making a choice so he didn’t make one which was still a free will choice to not choose a side .
      Look at the TTC , they run it as a Crisis-management or White-Knight business model to wait for things to go wrong because nobody will make a choice to improve or fix things.
      The idea is to make things so bad that the public will accept anything that is better than the status-quo which make the person that caused the crisis look like a White Knight that came in to rescue us.

      Don’t even mention the Gardiner because I heard about the big plans for it around 1968 from the Neighbour that worked at City Hall and said that a highway from Scarborough would be built to join it at the On ramp on the east Lakeshore entrance after Coxwell .

    Two choices:

    a) Stand up to idiot activists & racial grievance mongers like a man.
    b) Kick your own police chief right in the nuts.

    Is anyone surprised Hizzoner chose the easy way out?

    Well… he’d fit right in with the Liberal Party.

    When the new top cop was named the left said he may look black but he is white in his heart because of policys.

    Am I to understand that many folk actually want cops to go around and randomly demand that people show them their papers?

    What is it with all these little Hitlers?
