A Well Kept Secret Revealed!

John Tory, leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, may have been wealthy before coming into politics.

I know, I'm shocked too.

I had no idea.

I'm speechless.


I hope Ontario Liberal strategists are smarter than this [Orangeville Citizen, Taunts over Tory’s wealth may not work]:

Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals are indicating they will try to label Progressive Conservative leader John Tory as rich in the 2007 election, hoping this will hurt him. But they should not bank on it.

Liberal strategists will revive a campaign they started the day the Conservatives chose Tory leader, when they distributed pamphlets calling him Richie Rich.”

After recently introducing legislation to raise the base pay for Members of the Provincial Parliament, in attempt to ensure that the best and brightest remain at Queen's Park, it would be unconscionable for the Ontario Liberals to revisit this tired strategy - to suggest that because someone was successful while in private life, they are unfit for public office or out of touch with Ontario.

Hopefully, Mr. Dowd is mistaken and way off here, and the Ontario Liberals aren't going anywhere near this.

My wife and had personal dealings with John Tory when he was VP of Customer Service at Rogers Cable. We were serious pissed off with the lack of service and he called us, HIMSELF, at home to straighten out the matter. He ave us his personal cell number just incase we had any other problems in future.

The understands customer service and the value of the customer, and as voters, we are all his customer.

For that reason and for many more, Cath and will be voting for PC in the next Ontario election.

He really does try to keep the political bs to minimum, he not perfect, but he seems truly more interested in listenning to the voters and finding soluion. He is no afaid to support policies of the other parties when he sees that they are good
