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.
